  • Patrick Swayze

    Patrick Swayze promoted in interviews people normalizing little boys being placed in ballet as commonly as were little girls. My niece was in ballet only a few years ago as a wee one - there was always a scarcity of young male dancers. Her ballet school campaigned regularly but few came and even fewer of those stayed.

    Ballet is one of the most effective and beneficial physical activities for treating scoliosis. It helps improve the flexibility of the spine and develop the corset muscles, which reduces strain on the back and helps maintain correct posture. Ballet training also improves coordination, balance and equilibrium, which is also useful for treating scoliosis. For maximum effect, ballet training under the guidance of an experienced instructor, who can select special exercises for the specific case of scoliosis, is recommended.

      I'm not sure how you will solve the numbers problem of boys in ballet.

      Some women advocate that young sons should be forced to stay in ballet by their mothers/female guardians - even if their peers at school and elsewhere are responding with bullying and menacing - or worse.

      But, that will not work. It would cause resentment. Resentment leads to anger and anger leads to hatred.

        Ballet is very physically demanding, but not seen as macho - the opposite. Jamie Bell, who played Billie Elliot, had a lot of bullying after the movie came out.

          Some USA feminist activist women that think it's "funny" to "joke" about "how there should be a Take Our Sons Home Day" (to go with Take Our Daughters to Work Day) rather overlook that when the Ms. Magazine people started TODTWD, they *did* want to start a Take Our Sons Home Day. It never got over the ground - for when you feel like you have been mocked and ridiculed for a long time, you are not in the right frame of mind to believe your attacker's claim that they want to help you.

            Regarding his niece's experience, it is unfortunate that her ballet school faces a shortage of young male dancers. Still, her involvement, even for a short time, was encouraging. Hopefully, with continued efforts to normalize ballet for boys, more young people like her niece will see it as a welcome and rewarding activity to pursue.

              One woman (self-styled feminist) told me that because there are no Boys's changing rooms at almost all ballet schools, little boys should be forced to change at home. She then wrote in her next tumblr ask "*none of these this* should stop a young boy enrolling in ballet" - but ii told her that was proven a lie by her "little boys would stare" attitude. Because we both knew what her - and women like her - attitude would be if the genders were reversed. It shouldn't be that way. I doubt they'd care about little girls pointing and laughing if a little boy was caught changing and maybe even encourage the girls to touch him.
