I was flipping through channels this morning and on one of them there was ballet. Normally this is not my cup of tea and I would move on, but the image on the screen was... well... let me explain.

There was a lone female dancer in white wearing what appeared to be a large, flat donut. This part seemed fairly normal. She was dancing on a raised platform that was being held by several large and athletically built men. Again, not too out of the ordinary, but here's where things get a little odd for traditional ballet as I picture it in my head. The men holding the platform were dressed in either leather or PVC and the pattern appeared to be something out of the Bondage Lite ™ catalog.

While that was going on, another series of men danced a circle around the platform, dressed in the same dungeon gear and since they did not have to hold the platform with the dancing lady, they were free to wave around bull-whips in an artistic fashion.

Bull whips and bondage clothing? In the ballet? Die Fledermaus?

IS THIS NORMAL FOR BALLET????!?!

Did I mention that I'd just woke up and hadn't had any caffeine yet?
