Embroidered Dance…


“To be fond of dancing was a certain step towards falling in love.”

~Jane Austen

I’m awfully fond of the beauty that is dance…and I’m falling a bit in love with these gorgeous creations from artist Jose Romussi.  He has taken old photographs of dancers and embroidered them with brightly colored thread…

Pretty lovely effect, huh…be sure to check out more of Romussi’s work here.

P.S. Have you heard about the documentary First Position?  It follows six talented ballet dancers (ages nine to nineteen) on their way to one of the most prestigious youth ballet competitions in the world.  Looks fantastic…I’m planning on seeing it this weekend.
