Hello everyone! :D
I come here bringing a Swedish dancer.
Jean Börlin was a famous ballet dancer in Sweden. He was born in 1893, and became a prominent dancer at the royal Opera in Stockholm at a fairly young age. He was the premier danseur and coreographer for Les Ballets Suédois in Paris, and that dance troup played an important part in developing what we know as modern dance in this day and age! So, basically, he's not super well known, but you'll probably have heard about him if you're into dance and ballet. He was also openly homosexual and lived with a Swedish nobleman named Rolf de Maré for several years, which made him kind of notorious in Sweden. He also made some artsy french silent films with René Clair before he died in 1930. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ballets_su%C3%A9dois
From what I've read and heard, people thought that he was rather cute back in the day. So, was he hot or not? :D( Read more...Collapse )
