Danseurs, Ballerino or just... male ballet dancers.

Some just call them heroes, pioneers. You don't have to be gay to see a beautiful male body. But somehow I think my female readers will enjoy this post best.

Belgian dancer Sander Blommaert is an Artist of The Royal Ballet. He trained at The Royal Ballet Upper School and graduated into the Company in 2010.

Blommaert was born in Bruges and trained at the CD Dance Factory, the Royal Ballet School of Antwerp and The Royal Ballet Upper School. He was awarded the Ninette de Valois Award on graduating from the School. His performances while at the School included roles in Concerto and Toccata.

Since joining The Royal Ballet, Blommaert’s repertory has included Footman/Fish (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland) and roles in Connectome, Voluntaries, Rhapsody, The Nutcracker, Les Patineurs, Manon, The Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, Romeo and Juliet, The Dream, The Prince of the Pagodas, La Sylphide and Requiem. He performed a role in Royal Ballet Soloist Valentino Zucchetti’s Trio Sonata for Draft Works 2011, and created the work Les Deux, comme un for Draft Works 2014. In summer 2012 he created a role in Hot House, part of One Big Stage with Gareth Malone and the Royal Opera House Learning and Participation Department.

OK, OK, Han. One for you as well.
Jeez, stop nagging.
But it is my blog.
Here have fun!
I will, thanks.
Pretty huh?


  1. I'm not a big fan of ballet but I one of my all time favorites is Mikhail Baryshnikov...he has such an attitude when he dances. Loved him and Gregory Hines in the movie White Nights. One thing I do have to say...all dancers have to have some masochist in them. LOL

    Hugs and Blessings...

    1. Crazy people dancers. Masochists, the.lot of them. Spot on.
      Thank you for your comment, as always I appreciate it.

  2. My first visit to the "big theater" with all the lights and the orchestra was a ballet. I remember everything. It was so fascinating ...

    Unfortunately, far too destructive to the body.
    Han, the pic of the woman is very nice ..

    Take care,

    1. Ballet is very demanding for the body as any kind of dance is on a professional level. I knew a couple of Ballroom Dancers - professionals - and they were later in their career they had a lot of injuries.

      And the girl is soooooo.... pretty, Mona Lisa. Thank you for your comment.
