    noticed/controversy is not successful marketing....selling is successful marketing. If this ad causes a negative reaction to the product, it be unsuccessful marketing. Many ad campaigns have been pulled because the public reacted negatively.

    This is disgusting. It's stuff like this that keep men who could be amazing dancers from discovering something so spiritually enriching and rewarding. Like how for so many men, sports was what saved them, dance is what saved me from growing up to be a hoodlum like so many of the little boys in my ghetto neighborhood did. My own brother could have really been an awesome ballet dancer but he didn't want to wear tights because it was too girly. Instead, he gave into societys image of what a man should be and fucked so many girls and got one pregnant at 17. I would be so proud to see my son dance in a ballet just as much as he would playing football. It would show how diverse, open and versatile of a human being he is.


    It's a wonder to me why more men aren't involved with dance, or the arts for that matter. I can't throw a ball for shit, but I'd like to see a big tough jock have to hold his body into an arabesque CORRECTLY while balancing, all the while making it look effortless and beautiful at the same time. It takes so much strength! How many of them have enough stamina or endurance to take on a full evening of ballet that includes jumps, leaps, turns and lifting girls over and over and over and over and over above thier heads, sitting on top of thier shoulders and HOLDING THEM THERE!?!?

    From personal experience and being an active member in the Philadelphia dance scene, I've made more straight male friends and have kept more straight male friends being involved in the dance world than any other school, job workplace or otherwise. I have more straight male friends than gay male friends. Why? Because in the world of the arts, things like ones sexual orientation, race or gender don't matter. It's all about what kind of human being you are and what you can do with your facility. I could give a shit about who you fuck, what the color of your skin is or what God put between your legs. All I care about is if you could make me stand out of my seat because you look so wonderful onstage.

    I'd like to see some of you guys pull this one!

    Ok, so my fellow dancers will see that I didn't point my feet or fully straighten my bottom leg...or turn it out for that matter...but you guys see my point.

    It ain't easy bein' beautiful.

    And for all you men that say you would'nt have your son try ballet, think twice. It may be what saves them.
