In 1948 a British film titled THE RED SHOES delighted American dance fans with an imaginative interpretation of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale about a pair of magical red dancing shoes.
The beautiful ballet dancer, Moira Shearer, captivated audiences as the ill-fated ballerina, Victoria Page. Since then little girls and their dolls have acted out the story of the girl who could not stop dancing.
Since a picture is worth a thousand words I thought I'd do a few pictures of Sasha in her red shoes taking a few ballet and modern dance positions using my pipe-cleaner waist gripper. As you can see, now Sasha can not only assume fourth position but also a few dramatic dance steps as well.

And, like Victoria Page, she can't stop dancing.
