Silver Ballet Dance Jewelry – Ballerina
Arabesque Brooch – Large
Sterling Silver 925
One of the basic poses in ballet, arabesque takes its name from a form of Moorish ornament.
Arabesque is a body position in which a dancer stands on one leg (the supporting leg) with the other leg (the working leg) turned out and extended behind the body, with both legs held straight. In classical ballet, an arabesque can be executed with the supporting leg en pointe or demi pointe or with foot flat on the floor.
