The Dance Class, Edgar Degas, 1874

Degas frequently painted and sculpted ballet dancers. The man in the painting is a famous ballet master teacher.

  1. Taking lessons. Write about lessons you have taken – music, dance, skiing, skating, bike riding, even Kumon – any lessons taught by someone other than your parents.
  2. Write about outfits and costumes you have worn – Halloween, church, acting in a play, etc.
  3. The lunch break – imagine you have been exercising as much as these dancers have all morning. Write an inviting mouth-watering description of what you would like for lunch.
