The Dance Class a new painting by Barbara Borck-Hart

August 23, 2011

This is the first video in the fieldtrip series. You accompany me to a real dance class in Milford, CT. and watch the dance class while it is going on.I want you to notice the energy of the dancers and the  joy it brings them. Please follow me as I document their movement on canvas. I’ll take you from a blank canvas to its completion so you can see how the energy is transformed. Join me on this journey. To see more of my completed works visit my website  To see earlier videos about other paintings look under  the  archives on the blogsite
