The Adjudication

Oils on canvas, alla prima
2014
16 x 16 inches

From the 2014 dance school adjudication at Heritage Playhouse. The young girl pulled off a hilarious performance dancing hip hop to music from Annie after her poor bout with nerves. The older girls in their red costumes with black tutus danced an intentionally awkward comic dance to Music Box, all dancers with Dance Works Academy. Here they are supporting the younger dancer as they receive their comments from the adjudicator, a solemn, serious and terribly exciting moment.
