A ballerina tribute

This is the grave of ballerina Marie Taglioni at the Montmartre cemetery in Paris, where young dancers still leave their dancing shoes and flowers. Marie Taglioni pioneered the en pointe style of dance in the 1800's which characterises ballet today.

What a lovely way to honour a dancer whose life & work had such great influence on the classical ballet artform.
