This may seem like a ridiculous idea, but people enjoy dance and the human body is the most beautiful thing that was ever designed. Dance is the best way to celebrate human ability, and ballet is where shape and form find harmony. All of the dancers have fantastic bodies, so they don’t mind showing off a little skin. My ballet is titled Rite Of Passage and it is an experiment of sexuality that shows more passion than the bedroom scene from Romeo and Juliet. The non-prudish choreographers were challenged to create artistic nudity like that which was shown in the Broadway play Hair. Ancient Greek athletes always competed naked and this made it more exhilarating for the spectators. I will be holding live auditions next week and you can leave your tutu at home.
