In the case of Dessay it is true. She first set out to be a ballet dancer and took class at least to her middle teens--not sure why she stopped at that point but it is all to the best because she is one of the finest singers in her rep of this generation. Her dance training is really obvious in "Tales of Hoffman" in the Olympia act (which is based on the same E.T.A. Hoffman story as "Coppelia"). Her ability to sing the difficult coloratura while impersonating the mechanical doll is amazing.

Back to the subject at hand, I'd nominate Charlize Theron. I understand she has some dance training and I bet the late Bob Fosse would have gone ape over her. She's also a potential Balanchine Superwoman type too, I think. Also Joanne Woodward. She's a big ballet fan and why no company has asked her to do roles like the Queen in Swan Lake I'll never understand.

Among current celebrities...I can't help here (Dirac, I love your definition of moves like a dancer. Very apt.)

Adjani has the perfect face (and temperament) for Giselle...

;-). And both legs are perfectly turned out! That hardly qualifies him, but it is a good start. . .

Also as far as musicians go... Peter Steele of the band Type O Negative he's 6'6" but as I've seen in some videos I could swear he's got the ballet waddle.
