As suggested by Louis-Ferdinand Céline Eliane Bonabel issued a series of drawings at the Waker Academy of Dance in Paris (Thanks to Gen Paul, the last great French Expressionist and friend of Celine, who took dancers as models for his paintings, Celine will discover this place.)

 
The Dancing lessons were managed by Lucette Almansor that Celine married in 1943. These drawings related to dancing were used later on, as sketches for the illustrations of "Ballets without music, without dancers, without anything".
