DANCE, TENNIS, OR FOOTBALL


This week has been a combination of dance rehearsals at the Oregon Ballet Theatre, outstanding performances in sports with the tennis finals at the Australian Open, and the NFL Superbowl.  

When reviewing my sketches from these events I am struck by their similarities.  Even though art philosophers have written many chapters on the topic of the cross referencing that exists in sports and dance, it is still exciting to see it come down on the sketch pad in front of you.  

The image to the right is an example of this daily revelation.

I was sharing your thoughts about similarities in movement between dance and sport with a good friend of mine who has had a very long and successful basketball career. She wondered if you ever superimposed the two different images on top of each other to compare. Interesting idea?
