Rainbow-colored image in which a male and female ballet dancer perform a `pas-de-deux'; when viewer stands to right of hologram, the dancers are facing away from viewer, with the male standing behind the female, the male holding the female's hands, which are outstretched parallel to her shoulders (in a flying position); she is balanced tip-toe on her left foot, and her right leg is bent with her knee pointing outwards; when the viewer moves to right, the scene rotates so that by the time the viewer reaches the far right of the hologram, they are seen in profile, so that their right sides are visible; as the viewer moves right, the woman performs a `pas-de-deux' ballet move, in which she raises her right leg and then stretches it outward.

Please note that due to the unique challenges of holography as a medium, high-resolution digital images are not available for most items in the holography collection. Please contact us for more information on reproducing images of holograms.
