I saw an ad in marie claire with a gent in a ballet cotume, he looked like a dancer, but could just be a model in tights.

There were scuffs on his shoes, makes me think it was a real dancer or a very good wardrobe mistress.

Somebody here mentioned Andris Liepa--so THAT was the person who interviewed Ulyana Lopatkina for a TV documentary in 1997! :thumbsup: I do agree he's definitely quite handsome. :clapping:

By the way, I think Ivan Kozlov (who's Lopatkina's dancing partner since last year) could be quite handsome if someone gives him a good hairstyling.

Wow, I'm so glad someone (Dulcinea) mentioned Sascha Radestsky. Thanks, Dulcinea. I second that.

I would also like to nominate Casey Herd.

Now, if I could just get to Amsterdam I could see them both!

Roberto Bolle? he's hella handsome, and looks fantastic in fashion ads.

Edward Villella
Carlos Guerra
Grant DeLong
Zachary Hench

Edward, because he was a very handsome man in his youth, and carried it into his mature years. Besides, he's a great guy.

Carlos, because he has a ring on his finger and the two of them together are currently melting the polar ice cap. I know it's global warming, but you really have to see these two!

Grant, his recent performance of the Pas from The Nutcracker was beautiful. His handsome looks were complimented by his ability to make his partner look like everything was effortless. He enabled her to go for anything knowing that he was there. He was beautiful to watch, and made his partner look even better.

Zach, because he is one of our times most prolific dancers. He's been a principal with Boston Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, and now Pennsylvania Ballet. He can do anything, and he and his beautiful wife Julie Diana are exquisite jewels.

The lady being who, pls? Not all of us are familiar with the personal details of dancers not based in our area.

I am so eager for Miami's week-long visit to New York!

Carbro, his wife is Principal Jennifer Kronenberg, the most beautiful Odette of the season according to Jack Reed.

I thought the Bolle photograph OTT and compared to the other two photographs out of place. In fact, it did not look like the elegant prince I have seen on stage.

It's not out of place when you're talking about 'most handsome dancer'. That does not mean 'princely' nearly all the time, and could include candid photos as well as posed or photographed onstage. In the 80s, I saw Peter Martins on the street in white jeans, which was much better a way of seeing his handsomeness than in BlackGlama fur ads, in which he appeared (to underwhelming effect, IMO). In fact, I think Martins is one who does look better offstage than on. Of those 3, I'd probably take Gomes's as being the best, though, since the Bolle goes OTT but not far enough.

When or where did Grant danced the Nutcracker PDD? Thanks.

I’m inclined to agree with leonid about that shot of Bolle, although I know you meant no harm, cubanmiamiboy. Not that it isn’t, uh, appealing....

I like your other choices much better, though. :)

Bolle is featured very prominently in the December US Vogue (with Jennifer Aniston on the cover) in the magazine's annual 'theme' Annie Leibowitz spread. This year's theme is Romeo and Juliet, with Bolle as Romeo. Juliet is one of the models of the moment, Coco Rocha. According to the same edition, Rocha was 'discovered' at an Irish-dancing competition.
There is also a full page photo of Bolle in December's UK Vanity Fair (with Kate Winslet undressing for the Oscars on the cover). The photo is by Bruce Weber and Bolle embodies Weber's preferred aesthetic of gay icon-cum-Greek god.
