Start by drawing lightly so you can erase later.
Use an articulated stick figure get the pose right, an articulated stick figure has elbows and knees hips and other joints.

After you have the pose right then go around the stick figure to give it the form of a body.

The hand only shows the thumb. Draw it as straight lines on the back side of the hand and thumb and curved lines on the palm side.

Keep the face simple. Use a guideline down the center to keep both sides of the face even. Use a guideline across the middle to know where to put the eyes.  She is looking down so just draw the eyes as curving lines The nose is only a line on one side and a shadow underneath. The mouth is a shadow for the upper lip and a shorter shadow under the lower lip. the neck connects at the back of the head by the ear.

Draw the dress after you have the form of the body right.
The dress should be tight at the waist. The dress flows with the body and should look like it is turning with her so start with guidelines to show which way the dress is turning.

The ruffles are in three or more rows. Use guidelines first to plan where they are. Draw rounded zig-zag lines for the ruffles then. Starting at the top of each rounded curve draw short lines going up following the direction of the flow of the dress.

Use shading technique to give the dancer roundness. Put shadows under the ruffles.

If you color the picture remember the traditional Spanish dancer wears a red dress.
