An abstract print with three dancing nude female figures filling the frame of the image and a fourth figure, seen in profile, partially in the frame on the left side. The dancers are drawn in thin black outlines and are shaded in grey monotone. A few lines are made across the background and the negative space around the dancers is variously coloured in blue, green, orange and red. Ellipses made with a dashed line encircle the breast and buttocks of each dancer.
