American Sculptor of Dance: Sterett-Gittings Kelsey
"What Degas Might Have Done" "This essay proposes that if Degas is accepted as the undisputed Master Painter of Dance__specifically Ballet__ then the subject's undisputed Master Sculptor is Sterett-Gittings Kelsey" (see critiques) Choreographically correct and brilliantly executed in bronze, Kelsey gives us the essence of dance and must now be considered as a member of the Art World's Aristocracy.

  'To imbue each figure with an independent spirit, implied movements and an imagined soul is the challenge. It is this essence of dance captured in bronze, that gives a work of art intergenerational life. It is what sculpture is all about.. I believe that sculpture in the hands of a Master, should speak directly to the soul of man, as do the most moving works of Shakespeare or the most tender notes of Mozart."  Sterett-Gittings  Kelsey
