Men in Motion: The Art and Passion of the Male Dancer

François Rousseau, author of the best-selling Locker Room Nudes, affords us private and exclusive access to more than 60 dancers from across the world, and the world of dance. Members of classical dance companies, including Opera de Paris and the New York City Ballet, and contemporary dance troupes, such as Alvin Ailey and Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane, as well as dancers from disciplines as diverse as Broadway, hip hop, acrobatic, and folk are spotlighted both on and offstage. Rousseau captures the innate eroticism of these artists as they pose, prepare, and perform. These men, whether seen in their most personal times of self-reflection or public moments under the spotlight, are proof that the body is truly a thing of beauty. Whether solo or en masse, their energy and virility leaps from the stage, and the page.

Reviews

"Drawn from the diverse worlds of ballet, modern dance, folk dance and even breakdancing, the professionals that grace its pages are captured on the stage and in the studio, en masse and solo, displaying strength, poise and artistry in both their visages and their bodies. In contrast to
Locker Room Nudes, the subjects here are captured mostly in motion, highlighting not only the beauty of their forms but also the amazing athleticism and musculature gained from a life of dedication to their chosen art." ~MetroSource.com
