Ballet and modesty

Ballet is as close as we can come by art to overturning that curse of our nature and they saw that they were naked, etc. Any discussion of modesty would benefit by incorporating a reference to ballet.

Tangentially, this rendition of Les Paladins shows what could be done with contemporary dance (the lower-stage dancers, it seems to me, are imitating clouds. Lovely and tasteful.)
