Men and Boys in Dance

Comments Comments

The number of males taking up dance, particularly ballet, remains very low. What can we do about it?

Dance Australia editor Karen van Ulzen hosts a video forum with guest speakers Paul Boyd (Queensland Ballet Academy) Adam Bull (Australian Ballet) Benjamin Franzen (Perth School of Ballet), Matthew Lawrence (Queensland Ballet) and Garry Trinder (New Zealand School of Dance).

Together they discuss the obstacles boys face in taking up ballet and some constructive changes we can make to help them persist with their dreams.

Read more on the topic, with contributions from Jake Burden (Ballet Brothers), Aurelien Scannella (Artistic Director of the West Australian Ballet) and Victor Zarallo (formerly Sydney Dance Company) in the current (July/Aug/Sep) issue. Buy from your favourite retailer or print or digital here.
