Arabesque Danse

If you're in Lickety-Split for very long you will probably have a chance to see our very own Arabesque Danse lead the children in a dance recital - ballet of course.  

Miss Danse's mother was quite a famous prima ballerina.  Arabesque tried very hard to follow in her mother's footsteps (quite literally) but sadly her talents lay elsewhere.  However, as most of us do, she has always held onto her dreams. 

These days, with her rheumatism acting up the way it does, her actual dancing days are pretty much over -- but her dreams continue on in the small feet of her charges at their twice a year recital.  Should you see her on the street - you would make her day if you asked for her autograph.

"Dance is the hidden language of the soul of the body." - Martha Graham


  1. OMGosh!!! Ms Danse is quite the Prima Donna. I think she is living IN her dream while creating many tiny feet mini Primas are following her like she is the Pied Piper. What a inspiration she is!!

    Wonderful addition to your growing population.

  2. Another wonderful doll to your collection, they all make me smile.

  3. I hope she realises what an important job she is doing inspiring little ones to dance. She's a delight!

  4. I'm sure her students love her!

  5. Awesome, as always! I love the stories, and the names, do you lay awake nights thinking of these things? I love her button blue eyes, and her tutu and tiara are perfect. I'm with the others, smiling wide every time I see your newest Lickety Split resident!
