Aspiring ballet star kicked out of school for doing gay porn

A 22-year-old gay man from Denmark has accused a Canadian school of failing to appreciate his 'art', appearing in gay sex videos

Aspiring ballet star kicked out of school for doing gay porn

An aspiring ballet star was kicked out of school after they discovered they had found another way he could plié, by doing gay porn.

Jeppe Hansen, 22, from Denmark, had danced on stages around the world before joining the prestigious Royal Winnipeg Ballet School in September last year.

He decided to start doing porn earlier this year under the name Jett Black with the twink company Cocky Boys.

Beating out several others for a scholarship, when school officials discovered the videos, they told Hansen they no longer had a space for him.

According to Hansen, school administrators asked him to sign a letter stating he voluntarily withdrew from the program.

He is now accusing the ballet school of unfairly trying to define what constitutes art.

‘You cannot be in a company or with the school or whatever because you’ve decided to take a different standpoint artistically — not because you physically can’t do it, or because you’re not good enough,’ Hansen told CBC News.

‘Being told because you’re doing something else that’s interrupting with what we think you can do is really difficult because they know it’s your passion, they know that that’s what you live off. They know my entire identity’s built on it. So it was really difficult to be told that and to be told, “You know what? There’s no space for you here”.’

Hansen left the school in late March, and a month after he left Canada and moved to New York City where he is attempting to pursue a full time porn career.

Royal Winnipeg Ballet officials said they could not comment, but said the organization has policies and procedures in place.

In the handbook, it states any dancer who wishes to partake in ‘side projects’ must gain the approval from the school director.

The dancer, who has performed for the Queen of Denmark and now several eager online viewers, said being in ballet is so ‘restrictive’.

‘It was more important for me to be me and to do the things I wanted to do for once, and not what everyone else wanted’, he said.

‘To me no one can tell me what art is. Art is what you and I define art by.’

Hansen said he hopes to return to professional dance one day, but is currently enjoying working in adult entertainment.

‘My dancing career is not over. And when they [officials at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet] told me that, I thought the same thing,’ he said.

‘I’m taking a break from performing and I’ll take this break until I find a place where I can fit in as a ballet dancer.’
