Rising Ballet Star Claims He Was Kicked Out Of School For Starring In Gay Porn

jett-black-ballet-v-pornDanish danseur Jeppe Hansen found himself pas de bourée-ing out in the cold after the Royal Winnipeg Ballet allegedly kicked him out for finding another way of expressing his art: gay porn.

Hansen started dancing at the age of two and has performed in the Royal Danish Opera, The Ballet in Tivoli Gardens and even for the queen of Denmark. He beat out thousands of hoofers to land a scholarship in the prestigious academy, but once he started pirouetting on penises, he claims the RWB bid him adieu.

Fans of white twink porn may recognize Hansen’s ridiculously tight little body from the Cockyboys stable of stars where he goes by the name Jett Black:

Jett Black has been an artist his entire life. He loves to move his body and perform in front of other people, so you can see why making porn is no different to him. In fact, being naked on screen adds another layer of depth when he’s expressing himself, a certain “raw passion” he says, that he’s proud to share with the world. As long as he’s in a safe, comfortable environment, Jett loves to show off and turn guys on. […]
Watching Jett stroke himself was like experiencing a true work of art — there’s strength, passion, emotion, and creativity. The movements then slowly build up and intensify until the grand finale. With a performance like Jett’s, I think it’s safe to say we’d all give him a standing ovation.

Well, we’re certainly at attention. With rave reviews like that spurting up, Hansen’s future as an adult film entertainer seems bright — but his ballet prospects aren’t quite as en pointe. According to the 22-year-old Dane, RWB asked him to sign a letter stating that he voluntarily withdrew from the program after he appeared in his first porno in February. Hansen left the academy in late-March then moved to New York the following month to pursue the porn thing full-time.

While some may not understand the kid’s decision to join the at-times-seedy world of gay porn, Hansen sees the adult industry as another form of artistic expression, free of ballet’s rigid constraints.

“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,” Hansen told CBC News. “Being a ballet dancer is restrictive. Everyone tells you what you have to do, how to look, what to weigh, how to perform [and] be the artist you are.”

So before he went all Black Swan and wound up scissoring with Mila Kunis, Hansen found release through porn — in many ways. And positions. All we can say is that ballet training really shows:

Cockyboys’ founder Jake Jaxson, who wrote that glowing review, shares at least some of Hansen’s artistic aspirations when it comes to porn, noting that he’s blurring the lines between mainstream and adult entertainment. “The films are meant to be entertaining and sexual at the same time,” Jaxson said. “I don’t like movies that show young people’s heads cut off or their arms ripped from their body. And everyone goes and watches that … and those performers are not looked at as being outside of the mainstream.”

Porn certainly is making its way into the mainstream, with stars like Francois Sagat finding success with their clothes on and a Cockyboys film even making a non-X-rated show at this year’s Q Fest. Hansen is also plié-ing the line between porn and pop, having recently posed for a Liberace-inspired editorial for Paper Magazine:

But even if bottoming takes him to the top, Hansen still hasn’t given up on his first and true love.

“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.”

Best of luck to ya, Jeppe/Jett. We can’t really show you highlights from his acting reel, but take a look at Hansen doing his old day job, courtesy of CBC News:
