Take a peek!

Hi all - Whilst running tonight this vision kept on popping up. Felt the need to share for like minded runners. It is a plethora of beauty and strength. It also translates to us relevantly in a running sense too. You can make your own mind up on it but for me - it pushes and pushes! The song is on my new playlist and evokes something special when running and hope others benefit too. Enjoy! :)

If it difficult to download then press pause for a few minutes

Well, as a race warm up, I guess it will do, but he's going to struggle to find somewhere to pin on his number.....

"Oh er Mrs", certainly a tonic for first thing in the morning! Under all my rolls of aging fat, I too can look like the female version - in my dreams...

Beautiful, just beautiful! (The dancing was pretty good too!!)

Edit: I've just watched this again. It's probably one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. Such a perfect blend of strength, power, raw emotion and physical beauty. Think I need a cup of tea now!

interesting... but I have always found some of the ' deliberate hand placements' of classical ballet steps a little bit effeminate , personally, and at odds with the general ' maleness' thats they are trying to project.. probably prefer more modern dance to it, but thanks for sharing

Do you think is is trying to project maleness? My limited interpretation of the dance is that is that he becomes asexual and you focus more into the emotions and beauty. Although I did see something else spectacular of more a modern dance. A superb little girl in this video: God knows why they stick her in that leotard though- something slightly unnerving about it. Publicity stunt I suppose

Another fab running song!

Well i think having the original dancer stripped to waist , tattoos, tights .. mmm yes maleness being emphasised, liked the originality of the modern

clip .. but found the androgeny a little disturbing.. ( hard these days for a grown up male to comfortably watch a young girl dance, sadly)

DO think THIS works.. partly because the ' classical ' style more linked to the men being ' swans'

Fab! and strangely apt as I am surrounded by swans living on a Wharf

But if she warms up like that she'll be exhausted before she reaches the start line. Mind you, no problem pinning on a number, so better kit choice than the first guy.

She is expressing a good warm up routine! Not that I could replicate with these old bones! Taken from - Its a wonderful life: 'Darn! youth is wasted on the young!' :)
