Dance in Art


Join National Gallery/NADFAS lecturer Siân Walters and dancers on a light-hearted look at how dance and movement have been represented in painting throughout the ages

Paintings can tell us a great deal about the role of dance in history, giving us a valuable insight into the lives and pastimes of men and women from Renaissance Italy to the age of the Impressionists. Did artists depict specific dances that are recognizable today, and have performance practices altered over time? Siân is accompanied by professional dancers in historical costume who will take you back in time to the courts of Tudor England, Philip IV of Spain and Louis XIV, and discuss the development of ballet over the years and how it evolved into the techniques shown in the paintings of Degas.
