Through Katie Ruiz’s art class, several members of SDWS had an opportunity to sketch during the rehearsal of Swan Lake ballet at the Civic Center. Trying to capture moving feet is quite a feat in itself, but working in the dark is nearly impossible. Yet our members rose to the challenge and were able to draw the gestures with pencils or pastels or paint, as did Brent during the show. (she had to change her water during intermission) She got a lot accomplished as the dancers’ feet moved so fast, changing poses every second, unlike what we are used to in class when we do 5 and 10 minute quick poses. The show was also mesmerizing, so it was twice as hard to concentrate on our work. So kudos to those who go to the opera rehearsals to sketch and paint, this was a little different because none of the performers ever stood still!
