    I saw a video once of this amazing male ballet

    dancer. He was so masculine, powerful, and graceful. When he danced you could see every muscle move, the video slowed down as he jumped and you could see water droplets in the air as he danced. You could see every detail. I can't find the video, but that's ballet to me.
