Dancers’ Hot Bods

It is a truth universally acknowledged that dancers are hot.

But seriously. Yes, there’s a heck of a lot more to dancers than their hotness, but since their lives are their bodies, those bodies are generally in pretty amazing shape. And not like I-hit-the-gym-6-hours-a-day-check-out-my-muscles shape. Studying dance creates this uniquely amazing look—long, lean and elegant, like a racehorse.

Time Out New York just put out a fun “Hot Dancers” series, featuring dancers talking about how dancing keeps them fit and what else they do to stay in shape. Each mini-profile also has a bunch of beautiful photos playing up the gloriousness that is the dancer body. Shameless objectification? Well, yes. But these are also bodies that can do totally amazing things. Why not celebrate the happy side effect of hotness?

Read (and see) all about the hot bods of Megan Fairchild, Melissa Toogood, Michael Apuzzo, Rita Donahue and Joey Kipp.
