Day 5 of 84 : Famous Male Dancers
Women get most of the fame. But, a few men stand out as being more than props for lifting and supporting ballerinas. They enter the stage and immediately your attention moves too them. It’s call stage presence for a reason. They move with grace and strength; they defy gravity when they turn, leap and spin to our applause.
The top three across the last 120 years are: Vaslav Nijinsky (1890-1950), Rudolf Nureyev (1938-1993) and Mikhail Baryshnikov (1948- present). If you have the chance to view any of their dancing online or in person, you will be amazed at their strength, agility and their ability to pull your attention to them and their movements.
