The dance world consists of mostly women. Men have both an advantage and disadvantage when considering taking on dance. They have a better chance when it comes to trying out for roles because since there are less men, there is less competition than the women are against. The negative part of being a man in this profession is the stereotype that is associated with it. People like to assume that male dancers are gay or not masculine especially when looking at ballet. It is important to accept all genders into this art to be able to let people express themselves and enjoy dance without worrying about how people perceive their sexuality. Remembering that these beautiful ballets would not be possible without men helps you realize that it is a good thing there are more male dancers now than ever.
