The subject of the dance was one of Severini's favourite themes, which he frequently used to express Futurist theories of dynamism in art. Severini had joined the Futurist group at the invitation of the poet Filippo Tommaso Marinetti in 1910, and was a signatory of the Manifesto of Futurist Painters. However, the dance halls and cabarets of Montmartre, which he frequented with his friends Guillaume Apollinaire, Amedeo Modigliani and Pablo Picasso, provided him with greater inspiration than the subject of the machine, which was used by the other Futurist artists to express dynamic movement.
