A young ballet dancer is accusing the Royal Winnipeg Ballet of kicking him out of its school – after he began performing in pornographic videos.

 22 year – old Jeppe Hansen has danced on stages around the world. He studied in Montreal, New York and his native Denmark before joining the Royal Winnipeg Ballet School in September 2012 -beating out thousands of competitors for a spot and a scholarship in the prestigious dance school’s professional division. Earlier this year Hansen appeared in his first pornographic video and says school administrators asked him to sign a letter stating that he voluntarily withdrew from the program.

He says “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.”  He accuses the ballet company of unfairly trying to define what constitutes art.

 Hansen left the school in late March and moved to New York City  to pursue adult entertainment full-time under the screen name “Jett Black.”
