From the past - Michael Denard

Among today's dancers there is no contest for me: I think Marcello Gomes may well be the sexiest man on the planet. And what a wonderful dancer!

Greek God: Peter Martins
Soulful: Baryshnikov
Hot: Edward Villella
Beyond divine: Igor Youskevitch
Handsomest Choreographer: Paul Taylor (he guested with NYCB, so I am grandfathering him into the ballet thread)
The Handsomest Man in the World: dancer Rob Besserer
I am not including people I did not see in person, though I met Villella and Youskevitch after they retired from the stage. From the photographic evidence, the Danes have consistently populated dance with the handsomest of the handsome.

I logged on, Old Fashioned, with the intent of adding Jose Carreno :wub: , more on the sexy list than the handsome list, but he is handsome. :)

Also sexy, Andris Liepa :wub: , IMO the most charming man in ballet until Marcelo :wub: burst onto the scene.

Back to handsome, how could I (and you, out there) have forgotten Arne Villumsen? :wub:

And why are there so many Danes? Wow, for such a small nation, they must have quite a gene pool!

Danish people are GORGEOUS...not that I'm biased or anything ;)

I'd say Belotserkovsky, Andris Liepa, Angel Corella, and of course, Nureyev.

Also, I desperately want to add Victor Baranov, but I'm so fascinated by his legs and feet that I honestly can't remember what his face looks like. I do recall that he and Larissa Lezhnina complement each other perfectly.

For me - Nikolai Tsiskaridze and Laurent Hilaire. This is the kind of a discussion where people can never agree completely: beauty is in the beholder's eye.

I knew you would chime in for him, Carbro. :wink:

I've always thought Jock Soto was good looking.

Simon Ball, very handsome and princely.

Jock Soto, Marcelo Gomes, Amar Ramasar, David Hallberg, Albert Evans, Jose Manuel Carreno, Steve Hanna, Craig Hall, Seth Orza, Adam Hendrickson, Vincent Paradiso, and I think Eddie Liang is really attractive, too.

Women? No one holds a candle to Helene Alexopoulos...but Korbes & Golbin are right up at the top and I have always found Amanda Edge and Carrie Lee Riggins quite striking. Miranda Weese is gorgeous, she is in fact delectable...
