This clever, repositioning magnet can demonstrate a gazillion right and wrong ways to use the body instrument. He likes to demonstrate the difference between alignment and placement, extension and flexion, gesture and posture, and other dance elements. The lively 12-inch DANCER magnet easily shifts into intriguing shapes and transitions with the touch of a finger. (Geller designed).
DEGAS DANCER magnet
“Degas Dancer” is the ballet puppet magnet, whose tiny, almost-invisible magnets let you bring her to life, setting her in motion with the tip of your finger. Playful, instructive, creative, enchanting. Make static poses that demonstrate proper alignment, placement, balance, flexion/extension, and more. Slide her around the surface to watch how she fluidly reassembles herself in unimaginable ways. She is skilled in both static poses and exquisite movement, moving with ease with you as her partner. The puppet magnet, like the Degas artwork that inspired it, features a ballet skirt to add movement interest to the figure’s postures and gestures.Read More

THE DANCE TRIO (Dancer, Choreographer, & Degas Dancer)
If there is anything better than having one dancing puppet magnet, it’s having three. Move them purposely to choreograph. Move them instinctually to improvise. Create unique shapes, moves, and transitions to enjoy them fully. In the case of having a “trio of figures” instead of one, less is not more. Three is “more.” (Considering that the trio saves $3 off the solo purchase price, “more also costs less.”)
