This is an interesting arrangement of Tanagra-like figures.

A beautiful classic Duncan dance. The gestures always originate in the upper torso, with the arms and head following through. The arm movements must be continuous and flow into each other. This dance is an example of the perfect musical visualization of the Duncan style.
