This was made for a dance performance in association with our school district where the kids were studying Impressionism. The lights came up and we were in a vignette of a famous Renoir painting, then came alive doing the dances of that period. Thank you!

I cannot vote against myself but being a graduate of the Penna Academy of the Fine Arts and having a daughter who is a dancer the concept you described sounds amazing. Is there anywhere that any of it is on line IE You Tube?

Gary- I'll check on this. I have studied and danced with a dance historian at Stanford, (Richard Powers) in CA. There is a very active and large community of vintage dancers here. Look under 'Danse Libre' on You Tube for some performance footage.

Because most of my work is restoration and historic costuming, I always use natural fibers. I'm so excited to find this company to add to my resources ….such a great selection of weights and colors of linen!
