While in Las Vegas we were privileged to see the Jubilee show at Bally's casino, the legendary spectacle featuring topless showgirls in glittering costumes. It was marvelous to see such a bevy of half naked beauties, of course, and even more wonderful to see topless women admired, appreciated, and not, for a change, blamed for all the ills of society. It made us wonder what it would be like if other art forms embraced toplessness as part of its esthetic. What if the ballet, arguably the most beautiful form of dance, were to present ballerinas in tutus and nothing else? Imagine running into such a danseuse backstage as she warms up for a performance. Imagine her concentration, her tight body flexing and stretching. For that matter imagine her performing nude, en pointe in her satin ballet slippers, more beautiful than any gossamer costume could make her. Wouldn't the beauty of her well-toned nude body add to the beauty of the dance? Is there any reason it should be hidden beneath a leotard? We'd like to see the spirit of the topless showgirls find its way into all art forms; the beautiful, elegant and well-respected ballet seems like a good place to start. And no dancer more beautiful than Peyton to be the first nude ballerina.
