Here come the boys. Despite trailblazers like Nureyev, Baryshnikov and Carlos Acosta, ballet still seems the planet of the girls, especially for learners. Girls fill the classes, and most teachers are women. So the new issue of Dance Gazette is all about the guys. How does it feel to be the only boy in your class, or a rare male ballet teacher? How can teachers give their male students a sense of superheroic fun? Sir Matthew Bourne also discusses dancing boys, while stars like Darcey Bussell, Gillian Lynne and Li Cunxin to name the greatest male dancers of all.
