A few good men

I’ve been having such a great time substituting for Mr. David’s boys’ classes over the past few weeks.  It is so valuable for young male dancers to be in an all-male (except, of course, for Ms. Alexis) environment.  While those of us familiar with dance know the enormous strength, agility, coordination and endurance a male dancer must have to be able to perform what is asked of him, (Ballet Dancers Are Fitter Than International Swimmers, Study Finds) it can still be hard for a young dancer when he is the only boy in class.  

 In researching some video of Male Variations from different ballets to share with the Boys, I recently found a blog that I wanted to share with everyone!

The blog features some video clips of AMAZING male dancers, from Rudolph Nureyev to Fred Astaire to Lil’ Buck (of So You Think You Can Dance fame) that all dancers, not only boys, might enjoy.
