In the beginning, Mr. Darcy was regarded as too prideful for the majority of the characters depicted in Pride & Prejudice. In the end, after completely shedding his pride, Darcy falls deeply in love with Elizabeth. His shedding of his pride proves him to be a dynamic character. Given the multiple dancing scenes in the text, one can look at his changing behavior (during these scenes) as being the beginning of his metamorphosis. For me, I believe his change to be permanent--his love for Elizabeth does change him.
