CORY STEARNS, MODEL?

Haha, I kept my TV on (for once) after SYTYCD ended and I just overheard some story on Fox News about an ABT dancer who also models. I turned around to face the screen and there was our Cory Stearns, lifting Stella Abrera in Benjamin Millepied’s Everything Doesn’t Happen at Once during ABT’s recent season at Avery Fisher Hall! I didn’t hear the first part of the story because I wasn’t really paying attention, but apparently Cory was standing in line at a deli and was discovered by some modeling agent. He’s now a model, as well as of course, an up and coming ABT danseur. Then they showed an excerpt of a music video he did with Kylie Minogue, which he apparently made when he was 17 — so a few years ago. Wow — I’d never seen it: he made her look like a real dancer.

Then they had a little interview with him. They asked him if he had a girlfriend and he laughed and said no, he’s currently available, but added that he prefers dancers. Funny how male ballet dancers (well, the straight ones) always do that. Female dancers seem more willing to “date outside the box” so to speak. Hmmm…

Anyway, since I didn’t get the first part of the story I have no idea what the point was — is he in a new modeling spread in some magazine this month? Did anyone else see it?

  1. Yes, there's a modeling spread–a layout in the latest Vogue (Cate Blanchett cover) featuring Stearns and B. Millepied.

  2. Oh great — thank you Mr. Wolcott — I'll have to get a copy!

  3. About the straight danseurs only dating their fellow ballerinas…that fact is so true, which sucks for the ladies who are no longer dancers. : ( From hearsay, gay danseurs are more open to “date outside the box”, like their female colleagues — it is all good!

    Cory Stearns isn't the only ABT member who models. Colby Parsons, who dances for ABT II, also models:
