#ManCandyMonday Mikhail Barishnikov

Yesterday we did our annual outing to NYC to see all the Christmas sights! I’ll have pictures for you tomorrow, but in the meantime, that trip included our traditional visit to see THE NUTCRACKER at Lincoln Center which got me wondering about sharing with you some of my favorite dancing Man Candy – Mikhail Barishnikov!

It’s always amazing to me to see how the male ballet dancers (aka danseurs) lift the ballerinas high with carefully controlled strength or leap across the stage with dazzling jetes, seemingly hanging in mid-air at times. I understand that’s called ballon and it never fails to make me hold my breath.

Because of that, I decided to share with you probably one of the best danseurs of our time – Mikhail Barishnikov doing a ballet from WHITE NIGHTS. Mikhail also received an Oscar nomination for his role as a womanizing dancer in TURNING POINT.

If you like dance and/or ballet and have not seen either of these movies, I would highly recommend them.

Hope you enjoy this Man Candy Monday!

  1. Oh yeah! I like him. Haven’t thought of him in a long while. Thanks for the reminder. Such an amazing dancer.

  2. I have not had an opportunity to see ballet. I have always wanted to see The Nutcracker. Maybe some day. Glad you enjoyed your week-end. I spent mine just relaxing at home after church yesterday. Hugs to all.
