Ballet is an interesting art form; it’s elegant, posh, and — thanks to James Whiteside — incredibly sexy. James Whiteside was born in Connecticut and joined D’Valda & Sirico Dance and Music Centre at the age of nine. Since then, Whiteside has had a long and successful ballet career and these photos capture his prowess. Recently, Whiteside posed for New York photographer Nisian Hughes and the results were nothing short of stunning. Each of the photos highlights a different part of Whitehead’s fine-tuned body in an artistic and sensual way.
The five photos below illustrate the beauty of the male body engaged in ballet and show off the contours and athleticism Whiteside worked tirelessly to achieve. Flip through the photos and share if you like what you see!
