We set up this site to support and encourage young men who do ballet
and demystify the world of ballet for those who don't.

Quick clip: 540

A few days ago we posted a profile about the ballet dancer Gennadi Saveliev who also does martial arts (see it here). Here's a quick clip of him pulling a ballet stunt in slow motion:


  1. I am so grateful for this site. My son has had a terrible first few weeks back at school - he's 9 and has (unbeknown to us) been putting up with some awful bullying by some of the older boys (and girls!) in his school. They've called him some awful names (I'm sure you can guess the ones I mean) and it got to the point where he was begging me not to send him into school.

    Anyway, to cut a long story short, his teacher has asked me for some clips etc to show the class, so they can see how strong you have to be to be a male dancer. This site will be perfect to refer her to.

    Thank you as always for all your hard work.

  2. Thank you very much for your comment, Dancing Mum. I am sorry to hear this news. Did your son's teacher ever get round to showing some clips? Has the situation improved? I hope so. Feel free to email any time if you want more ideas on tackling this problem.
