That's some good stuff.

I might get razzed for this, but in the late 70s, one of my housemate's girlfriend was a teacher at a small ballet school and she talked about 6 of us guys into taking classes there, for free, scholarship, with our end of the bargain being we had to agree to take classes all year and be in the Spring recital. The school was 100% girls without us, they wanted some guys strong enough to lift girls up over our head and do the dips and turns -- made it look more like a ballet company instead of just a girl's school. Some of those teen-age girls (I was 25)....Ohhh mahh Ghhoddd. They'd been dancing for years and had tigh - ii - ight li'l bods.

It was so cool, doing the turns, when you would be steadying them with your hands on either side of their waste, and those lithe muscles just o' spinnin' in your hands. The overhead arabesque (sp) lift was a trip, one hand under their thigh, right up by the crotch, and one on their rib-cage just under boob. Oh man... I get misty eyed just thinkin' about it. It was kinda tough though, I mean they were teenagers, and sometimes they'd get a crush on you and I wanted to get into it in a way, but for several reasons, I never did -- hurting them and jail being the biggies of course. It was sweet enough just flirting with them.

Any young guy who is halfway fit.... check it out. I'll bet a lot of small schools would be looking for something like that.

And, what a workout - you have no idea. Muscles you never knew you had.
