Male Ballet Dancers Who Look Like They're Wearin' Nuthin At All, Nuthin At All, Nuthin At All!

First UP.

by Anonymousreply 9912/06/2013

That last ones are of Edward Watson of Royal Ballet. Is he straight? He was in New York at the Joyce performing in a ballet based on Kafka's Metamorphosis recently.

Male dancers wear almost nosthing under their costume just a "Suspensorium".

R6, I saw that in person in a changing room in a clothing store in Greenwich Village in 1977.

R6, He was popular at the baths!

I thought he was uncircumcised, R6 R12. He looks prepuceless in that photo.

R14. Rudolf Nureyev is uncircumcised. His foreskin is retracted to just below his corona ridge on his glans. But he is intact.

[quote]corona ridge

Excellent new phrase (for me).

by Anonymousreply 1610/20/2013

R9 R16 ive seen the stephen petronius dancers wear no belt and yes one could see the coronal ridge very clearly. of course in the big city one has seen male dancers pirouette wearing nothing under their tutus,

by Anonymousreply 1710/20/2013

Nureyev's parents were Muslim Tatars from Bashkortostan so it's entirely possible he was circumcised.

The CW had a reality show about a ballet company where all the handsome built male dancers were all straight with one nelly mo who seemed to cry in every episode.

Boys who take up ballet, the ones 15 and under -- are any of them straight? I would imagine that even today it's hard to be a straight boy and take up such an activity, especially in the US. I wonder why they even do it to begin with. Maybe their parents are/were in the professions.

Is there a reason other than showing off their great asses that male ballet dancers tights fit like those in the pics?

Not complaining, just curious.

by Anonymousreply 2610/21/2013

Not to embarrass you, R24, but I didn't use the word "glans."

"Prepuce," OTOH, is a lovely word. Somehow "retracted below his cockhead" isn't nearly as much fun to say.

by Anonymousreply 2710/21/2013

Why is it called a dance belt when it's not a belt?

by Anonymousreply 2810/21/2013

Sorry, hon, I meant r15.

by Anonymousreply 2910/21/2013

These days it may even be 50/50 between straight and gay men in the NYC Ballet. I love that company and they have been performing incredibly well this past year.

That being said, there are some incredibly handsome dancers - Robert Fairchild (straight and engaged to lovely Tiler Peck) is my favorite.

Tyler Angle (see link) is handsome and very sexy. He is openly gay. Sorry but I cannot find any shots as revealing as the op's initial links.

I do think his less attractive older brother Jared is gay as well, but I have not heard anything.

r21 Why do you specify under 15?? Most of those in ballet have to start very young--like elementary school. So yes there are straight male ballet dancers under 15.

R34, Nureyev's feet were worse than most dancers'.

He kept dancing too long, and in his later years his feet had so many fractures, bone spurs, corns, arthritic spots, and other horrors that sometimes he rode a bike from his dressing room to the stage. Because it hurt to walk that far, but he'd still dance.

Cape Prepuce is lovely this time of year.

by Anonymousreply 4410/22/2013

Yes, Jared Angle is also gay. I do prefer Tyler as a dancer.

Then there was Charles Askegaard who married that Sex and the City lady, only to cheat on her with another dancer. And then there is Andrew Veyette who finally married Megan Fairchild (sister of the aforementioned Robbie).

Over at ABT: Cory Stearns--straight. Daniil Simkin--straight. Herman Cornejo--straight.

Personally, I love Taylor Stanley. Definitely plays for the gays and ought to have a major career ahead . . .

by Anonymousreply 4510/22/2013

Careful, R44. Someone who has to look up the word "prepuce" will criticize you for using it [italic]because that's how stupid and nasty some people are[/italic].

by Anonymousreply 4610/22/2013

R45, so both Angle brothers are gay! I thought so.

Yes, I forgot about Taylor Stanley. Oh he definitely pings and I agree he has a major career ahead. He is very talented and I love seeing him dance; he is the only partner Ashley Bouder had who really worked well with her.

I used to think Joaquin DeLuz was gay but I think he is straight.

Is there a difference between a dance belt ad a jock strap ? Do actors wear them on Broadway under their clothes? Say it's someone like Norbert Leo Butz who has a couple of numbers requiring him to dance but to wear regular clothes in character like dressy trousers, would he have a dance belt on under that? Is it a regulation? Wouldn't a regular pair of briefs do the trick?

by Anonymousreply 5310/22/2013

dance belts look like briefs, don't they?

by Anonymousreply 5410/22/2013

If only there were a network of tubes . . .

That being said, with the one strap up the back, if you're not careful, you can rip hairs you didn't even know you had.

If you're this full of yourself as a young man, how unbearable do you think you'll become once you are a washed-up, over-the-hill, former ballet dancer at age thirty?

by Anonymousreply 6210/22/2013

It is telling that although ballet dancers often have buff athletic bods, they are almost never viewed or cited as attractive, or even as role models of the male form. In contrast, athletes such as football players and hockey players are routinely exalted as attractive and manly because of their physiques.

by Anonymousreply 6310/22/2013

How many famous ballet dancers are there? It's not a mainstream activity, so they can't be compared to sportsmen in terms of "idolhood".

R61, Craig Hall, is a NYCB soloist and the only major African-American dancer in one of the major companies. He is gay; his wedding was featured in the Sunday NY Times a while back.

He is almost unbelievably sexy while dancing, but is now over 30 and for some reason has thus far never been promoted to principal by Peter Martins.

Craig's performance in AFTERNOON OF A FAUN a few years ago was almost an event, he was beyond spectacular (see linked pic). He is now in his early thirties, so I am not sure how much more time he has left.

I believe Adrian Danchig-Warren and Gonzolo Garcia are gay. They did a spread in Out Magazine a few years ago.

Soloist Sean Suozzi is openly gay.

"Do not turn an artistic art form into pornography. Ballet dancers are trained dancers/athletes and we do not exist to satisfy your masturbatory fantasies."

OK, I love ballet and I actually agree with you 100%; that being said we have eyes and how can we not notice a good-looking man?

However when watching Balanchine or Robbins or Paul Taylor (or even Peter Martins' ballets, lol) it is a transcendent experience for me and many others. I for one can easily move beyond the "hotness factor"

Seriously, what bothers me more is ABT's turning their ballet dancers into performing endless jumps and pirouettes not for artistic purposes, but for the amusement of their Upper East Side audiences.

The dance belt must be all kinds of nasty when it gets peeled out their sweaty ass crack, especially if they took a dump prior. Ugh. I went with a dancer briefly, he'd come from class with his bag and I did not even want to know the condition of the gear inside.

I used to work with 2 retired male dancers and both were straight. I asked one of them about the gay-straight ratio once and he estimated about 2/3 in the industry were gay.

He danced in a few different companies in Europe and had a lot of great stories - wish I could remember them all. He said Nureyev had a reputation as an "animal" when it came to sex. Baryshnikov was said to be the epitome of class.

There seems to be some disagreement with that statement. To add to the list ...

Years and years ago, when Bill Maher still had his "Politically Incorrect" show, he did a week of shows in England.

I've forgotten how ballet became the topic, but Jonathan Ross said, "Let's face it. The only point of ballet is so that rich people can see men with enormous cocks wearing tights."
