Dance: Friedemann Vogel

Another installment on male ballet dancers and their remarkable bodies. Passed on by Mike McKinley, Chris Ambidge, and Arne Adolfsen from the Male Ballet Dancers Facebook page, Friedemann Vogel as photographed by Youn Sik Kim:


Vogel in mid-air: slender and lean, lean, lean, but with massive thigh muscles.

From Vogel’s own website:

In September 1998 Friedemann Vogel joined the Stuttgart Ballet and quickly rose through the ranks. In 2002 he was promoted to first soloist, the company’s highest rank.

And he guest dances with companies around the world, taking on an exceptionally wide range of roles in doing so.

Two more photos of Vogel by Kim:



Youn Sik Kim lives in Seoul, South Korea; his subjects are diverse, but ballet is a special focus. Profile photos of him from his Facebook page:

    From Arne Adolfsen on Facebook:
    I’ve been following Friedemann Vogel for a few years now. He’s got an extraordinarily beautiful “line” and his feet are, how you say?, breathtaking.

  2. Mike Says:

    Really! He’s very attractive, but those feet are amazing.
