Opportunity for Extended Open Studio Session with Dancer as Model
We have the opportunity to have a dancer who is with the Palm Beach Ballet and Lexington Ballet. He would be a perfect model for practicing anatomy and seeing the shapes of the muscles. He will be clothed in form-fitting ballet shorts. He can stay an extended time for those who wish to stay longer to take advantage of this opportunity.
