You don't need professional male models to pull off an enthralling and dynamic editorial, and 'English Lads Can Dance!' proves this. The advantage of using these boys as subjects however, is that they already come from a background of performing.

No theatrical movement or spirited pose is spared in this series of monochromatic photographs by Bruce Weber, rather capturing the group of talented guys doing what they do best in frozen frame stills that subtly suggest their contemporary ballet skills. Tom Clark, Richard Winsor, Chris Trenfield, Franklyn Lee, Tim Bartlett and Dominic North lunge, spin and shake with high energy, wearing clothes that make it all look like practice.

Included in the January 2011 L'Uomo Vogue, 'English Lads Can Dance!' brings real spirit to the pages of deliberately posed pictures.
