nude dance classes...opinions?

I was on another lesser (obviously) ballet forum and there was this huge thread about nude dance classes and how great they are. I mean, the guys aren't even allowed to wear dance belts, and some of them said that they got boners in performance!

I thought that sounded ridiculous but there seemed to be a lot of fans of the idea, so I was wondering what you DDNers think about it?

I personally would never go within 10 feet of a coed nude dance class.

Um..what?! I've never heard of this. Wow. What kind of class is it? Like, stripping? Pole dancing? Please tell me it's not ballet!

I myself would never ever go in a nude class. I would be unable to focus because I would constantly be comparing myself to everyone else.

I'd be too worried about my wobbly bits. And sweating. A room full of sweaty nude people? Not my idea of a fun time unless alcohol is involved.

There's some company that does all their performances in the nude. Something about stripping away everything, so you appreciate the art in its rawest form.

I might try it. Why not? I like dancing, and I like being naked. Hah!

What, like, completely nude? Not even pantys?
I am... kind of grossed out at the thought. Not that I'm prudish but I would not be too delighted if I'd see my classmates coochie :O

Ha, T, I like being naked too! And I love dancing around naked when I get out of the shower. But in a dance class?

Well, at least you know you wouldn't need special dance clothes...leotard not clean? Not a problem. Don't need it! Heh.

There's a company in my city that does a yearly performance on a nude beach. I've never seen it but it's apparently very impressive, and the company is very well-respected around here.

I just immediately thought, "awkward turtle!" LOL.

I'm also worried about wobbly bits. And no one gets to see my va-jay-jay. Wilhelm is very shy.
hmm

I'm just wondering WHEN you become nude. Like, do you drive there in your car nude, or do you strip down once barre starts, or what?

LOL. Hey, I'm just trying to figure this out in my head, okay?

Isn't it painful to have boobs and nads flopping about?

i'm picturing in my head the implications of a weekly nude dance class, then *that* week of the month comes around and all the ladies have a little string flapping around as they do developpés a la seconde.

No, not for me, no thank you

sounds a bit fetishist

Gah. My boobies would hurt bouncing up and down the whole class.

Wouldnt that be alittle embarrasing for a guy to get a boner right in the middle of class? I mean..its not like he could hide it or anything.

:P

Y'know, I don't usually admit stuff like this, but I'm going to make an exception in this case... I haven't gotten a "boner" in class since I was like 13. And since I assume most of the people in the nude dance class are adults, I just don't believe that story. Contrary to popular belief, guys do not just pop a stiffy for no reason. I think the idea of a naked dance class is wrong for a LOT of reasons, but boners aren't one of them. I mean, we have nudist beaches where entire families spend vacations, and you never hear these stupid stories of guys getting random erections. It just doesn't work that way.

Yuck. I wouldn't be able to stand it. That's just not my idea of fun... And, it would be VERY awkward!

^OH GOSH! I'm just thinking about the partnering class I take...and the tango we were working on a few weeks ago...YIKES! Soo inappropriate.

I'm not the most modest person, but you wouldn't get me within a 100 feet of that class. I don't think I like the idea of others being able to see everything while I dance.

If by some miracle I did go to that I sure as heck wouldn't be doing grand battements or anything of that sort either!

I wouldn't mind if I were previously comfortable with the people in the class, and I would probably have to be more comfortable with the guys than I would ahve to be for the girls...

But I really like the Idea, actually. Clothing can be too...restrictive at times. It's liberating to be free of clothes and i think that it would change the way my body is held, and that would be interesting. The naked body is not something to be scared of, grossed out by, or felt to be taboo; at least, I don't think so. Even less-than ideal forms can still be beautiful...especially when worn with confidence.

I couldn't imagine how open and honest and pure dancing would feel. I don't think it would be good as an several-hours-per-day kind of class, but it soudns like a good idea.

Was this a European dance company?

There are countries out there who spend more on National art grants than on National Security. I can totally imagine them being in the headspace that would appreciate something like this. :)

No thanks, not for me.
I love to have a little boogie when I get out the shower, but dancing naked infront of people? :O

Also the thought of partner dances LOL!

Thinking of pas de deux I remember how in lifts my partner sometimes accidentially slips his hands between my legs when I am falling and he tries to catch me. Now think of this in the nude... oh lord...

Ah haha! No way!

In dance class Im already so uncomfortable with my body - Id probably die if I was naked!

The only people who I plan on allowing to see me naked are my boyfriend (only when the room is dimly lit haha) and my doctor.

I dont think I'd be able to just let go and dance - Id be constantly looking at myself in the mirror to make sure everyone was seeing me at the most "flattering" angles :)

Owch, no way! My boobs hurt when I so much as run down the stairs without a bra on, let alone dance without one. And also, a lot of dance is splitting your legs apart... surely we don't want TOO much on display. It would go from dance to porn.
