Drawing Dance

We’ve all heard the expression “putting pen to paper,” but what about “putting foot to paper?” Well, the “Body In-Sight: Action Drawings from the Dance Studio” exhibition at the Museum of Performance and Design in San Francisco will be doing just that, with ballet dancers! On Saturday from 2 to 3:30, watch several dancers, including San Francisco Ballet principal Maria Kochetkova, perform barre exercises in paint-dipped ballet slippers to show what ballet looks like on paper. If you like what you see, be sure to attend the auction later from 5 to 7, where these liquid pencil drawings will be signed by the dancers and sold to benefit the museum.
