I know this might sound really funny and weird but has anyone every seen any ballets where the leads actually kiss? Im doing an assessment on physical movementa nd ofcourse im doing ballet, i need some photos of dancers in their roles kissing. I hope this isnt considered "pornographic" and if there are any problems mods feel free to just delete it.

In lots of ballets the leads kiss.
Err, Romeo and Juliet, Sleeping Beauty, that's just a couple off the top of my head. I don't have any pictures though!

Oh, yes. I have seen many ballets where the dancers actually kiss. I remember in particular "Manon", in the bedroom pas de deux, where Des Grieux kisses passionately Manon in a long kiss after a passionate look into each other's eyes. It's true passion! You can see it in DVD "Great Dancers of our time", between Vladimir and Diana. I can't show you a picture of it, because I still don't know how to capture photos from DVD's. But there are others:

In Onegin, Olga and Lenski (Vladimir and Corinne Verdeil)

In "Ring um den Ring" (Artem Shpilevski and Nadja Saidakova)

Romeo and Juliet (Bolle and Alessandra Ferri)

In Carmen (sorry, don't recognize the dancers :?)

In Manon (Massimo Murru and Sylvie Guillem)

EDIT: I have just found a video of that part of Manon I meant above. Just look at this kiss when they are standing (second clip): www.dropshots.com . . .

Btw, some ballets have A LOT of erotic power, like Manon. But you can even find the special erotic extra in classical ballets like Swan Lake. Odile is PURE erotic.

a hand kiss is very popular in ballet, here Artem Shpilevsky kisses Polina Semionova´s hand in Cinderella

Image hotlink - 'http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v58/KathyKesby/cinderellasemionovamalakhov25.jpg'
Polina and Vladimir Malakhov a short time before they kissed each other in a Cinderella rehearsal. They did that NOT because it was in the choreography, but only for saying goodbye to each other (they´re very good friends).
