I've done a number of paintings of ballerinas and several of them are similar in that they depict dancers getting ready to perform.  The similarity ends there, though, at least in terms of psychological implication.  In one, titled AURA, the ballerina is serene, detached - a state of mind that may or may not help with the dance.  The opposite is true in LET'S GO.  Here, the dancer is intense, fierce in her focus and readiness for the moment, this insant, this thing she is about to do.
