Ballet Beefcake and Bulges
Ballet is the only art form where bulges are commonly visible.
Everyone knows it, but no one talks about it. Spandex tights are necessary to allow the dancer a full range of movement, and your eyes are supposed to be trained onto the dance, not the beneath the belt gifts.
But really, who can look at anything else?
Sometimes there are shirtless shots that add to the aesthetic display. But you still can't take your eyes off the ballet bulge.
You can see bulges at some of the most famous opera houses in the world. This is Mathias Heymann of the Opera national de Paris.
But down home works just as well, as Ronnie Underwood of the Oklahoma City Ballet demonstrates.
