Why we love it

Dance is an ode to life, joy, physical abandonment, and has become an emblem of modern art. … Painted at the height of the Fauvism aesthetic and embodies the emancipation from Western art’s traditional conventions of representation.

The dance as the ultimate symbol of the reconciliation of individuals.

This is just our small contribution, your curiosity can do the rest.
