Ray, I must dissent on one point. Patrick Bissell wasn't hot? I had to get out my oven mitts just to put up a poster. :)

On the basis of the photo of Leon Danielian recently posted by RG ( partnering Mary Ellen Moylan, if I remember right), oh my God, what a hot guy.

and Youskevitch in the next photograph, what a thoughtful, sensitive, handsome man. Like a horse or a dog, almost, so beautiful, so present, so intelligent, so alive.

Danielian, definitely. And add John Kriza to the ABT stud muffin list, if his name hasn't arisen already.

I never found Peter Martins handsome, and Carlos Acosta is (I'm afraid) not very attractive, at least to my eyes.

Very good-looking from ABT's current roster is Grant DeLong. Casting him as Paris alongside Hallberg and Paloma was a mistake, as I couldn't understand why she'd turn down Grant for David.

I also like Craig Salstein for his unaffected American good looks.

(My post made it here, but the server had an apparent glitch - probably it was mad at me for speaking ill of Carlos and Peter - and it didn't update the index or list of Last Posts.)

I see them as at their handsomest in particular roles. Some I've seen offstage and I don't count that, because they aren't always as handsome there.

Peter Martins in 'Davidsbundlertanze'
Nikolaj Hubbe in 'Apollo'
Peter Schaufuss in 'Coppellia'
Rudolph Nureyev in 'Sleeping Beauty' (1973)
Marcelo Gomez as Von Rothbart, ABT/PBS production of 'Swan Lake'

Also remember thinking Patrick Dupond in Ballet at the Beacon, 1980; and Michal Denard in video of 'La Sylphide'' looked pretty fantastic.

Who, in your opinion, is or was the most handsome male dancer? This is a
no-brainer for me: the drop-dead gorgeous Vladimir Vasiliev. :wub: Visit the website below and you'll see what I mean.

Maris Liepa was also very handsome.


Jeff Golladay, dancing with ABT - yum!

This whole topic just makes me smile at the irony. I remember being rather affronted last year by former NYTimes critic John Rockwell's lament that there were no longer any "glamourous" ballerinas?! :FIREdevil: And now here on BalletTalk we have two topics discussing looks!

ALL dancers are beautiful to me. They are in shape physically, disciplined and determined mentally, and move like nobody else with a very self-contained poise and grace, even when 'playing hard' in the real world, or many years after they have left the studio or stage.

Yes, there are dancers who make me sigh because they are beautiful or handsome in the more conventional sense, but it will always be those other abilities that attract me most. And as one dancer so astutuely observed, "No matter who you are, it's the person first, and then the dancer." So, if a person, dancer or not, has an inner beauty (ie. kindness, honesty, generosity of spirit), then who says the exterior has to match? Or do we want Dorian Gray?

PS. I loved those memories/descriptions of Christopher Gable, what a lovely epitaph to have.
