Having just seen a photo of jude_w I was wondering how many other art nude models out there are who are trained dancers.

Raphaella is good. I shot her last year and will do again in a few weeks time.

I am sure most people on here now of course know of Raphaalla who is on Jim's site and mentioned above but just in case anyone has been rather secluded here is a pic



A model not as well known on here but more on PS who has a very strong dance background is Katy Pectin (Katy_Cee)



And finally I will mention AmieBoo (again very well known on here) who did dance a while ago






EDIT : I guess I was slow in editing as there are now further mentions & pic above of Raph

oops as she closed her portfolio on here a while back I forgot about her but I think she may still be active elsewhere is Demari_Vi_Syth who I had the pleasure of working with at Jim Rowbotham's dance workshop last year

Here she is with Raphaella from that workshop:

I like to shoot the best art nude models, many of whom appear to be dance trained. I would be interested in doing a shoot with you sometime.

Another dance trained model shot recently - Gina Negus

I'd like to use you but after booking Raphaella for the day i won't have much money left maybe next month. There seem to be lots on MM who include dancer when you do a search but are not necessarily trained ie ballet and so on. One that i can recommend though she does not do nude is my old pilates intstuctor jade davis who was in charge of pilates at the London studio centre she is a dance and actress but as i say does not do nude. Forgot to mention that she is on net-portfolio

I'm a trained dancer! Have taken lessons and performed to a high standard since the age of 3 in most styles going (from tap to hip-hop) and now focus on contemporary and world styles (oriental and latin american... and yoga). I no longer take ballet lessons regularly but can definitely work in balletic styles (i.e. contemporary) and should soon have some images in my portfolio of me in my pointes.

Demari keeps a profile on MM ... http://www.modelmayhem.com/748253 ... so if anyone is interested, i think she can still be contacted there.

Joceline is definately a good choice if you are looking for a good classical dance model ... Mind you ... she is tall and probably bigger sized than most dance models

Quoting ChrisUK:

Katy Pectin is 100% recommended ! :-)

And I have to agree with Chris, Katy Pectin is 100% recommeneded!

I'd also recommend Kayleigh Lush, over on Mayhem, who's just concluded her ballet degree.

I have worked with Katy, she is excellent.

Trained dancers do have a different pose to other models, not wrong just different, and this does need to be considered, when booking.

I do not have time to book many a model shoot but when I do I look at what best suits both me and the model. If they don't suit what I want then why book it.

I finally did a shoot with the very talented Kayleigh Lush yesterday.

Kayleigh studied contemporary dance at college and has modelled at London Fashion Week. She is a 5'11" tall fashion/art nude model from London.

She will be joining Net-Model soon.

I'm dance trained

I did tap, modern, jazz, cabaret, character and classical ballet for twelve years. I attended the Northern Ballet School (Manchester) but had to quit when I went to University because I couldn't possibly do both AND work a part time job.

The poses NEVER leave you and neither does that sense of body awareness and poise. I don't have my costumes anymore but I'm still flexible and have my battered old pointes! I was 'en pointe' for six years, started dancing at seven, went onto pointe at twelve and gave up at nineteen to go to University- by this point I'd snapped six pairs of pointes through wear and two on first rise my feet were so strong and supple!
If I could go back, I'd choose the ballet.

Having dance training is a major plus point when selecting an art nude model and if you mention this in your profile notes it will make you a lot more interesting to photographers who appreciate art nude.

Perhaps you should add some more "dance" images to your port like the one below ...
