BREAKING: Ballet Boys Are Hot

I was always weirded out by the fact that none of my non-dancer friends understood the appeal of ballet guys.

“But they wear tights,” was the response I usually got to my high school locker full of danseur photos. (No, really—I did that. You would’ve been friends with me, right?)

Well, yeah they wear tights. All the better to show off those gorgeous legs, obviously.

Ballet men are elite athletes—their bodies are their entire lives. Of course they’re smokin’ hot! Plus they’re artists, so, you know, they have that sensitive thing going for them too. What’s not to like?

Thank you, Buzzfeed, for backing me—and pretty much every other ballet fan—up here. Yesterday the meme-generating site put up a post titled “37 Dreamy Ballet Boys You’ll Want to Dance With.” And, uh, it’s a pretty good list.

Click here for the full post; we’ve made a slideshow of some of our favorite pics from it below. Happy Friday, everyone!
