As the man approaches the ballerina sat on the floor, the camera tracks him from behind. It makes the audience feel as if they are supporting him, and so it makes the ballerina seem even more isolated and alone. Because of this, we get the impression that she is in danger, and that as a character she is prone to trouble when other people are involved. Not only that, but the camera is hand held. The shakiness of the shot implies that the action is going to increase, making us feel uncertain and anxious for her.
The ballerina glances down wards, a motivated cut is used ofher feet. As feet are an essential aspect of being able to do ballet, it is focusing our attention to her feet. She looks downwards in a graceful way, as if she is appreciating the ability of being able to dance, almost worshipping it. From this, we get the impression that ballet is a large part of her life, as if it is virtually her religion to dance.
