BarreTalk Posted March 3, 2004 Report Share Posted March 3, 2004 Last night, at my studio's weekly partnering class the men outnumbered the ladies 5 to 4! We must have the only school on earth that attracts more men than women. I've been wondering when this was going to happen. We've been averaging 4 men and 5 - 8 women, so the ratios have been close. When the two best teenage girls decided to duck pas de deux in favor of a jazz class at another school, we finally went over the top. It's a new experience waiting around pas de deux for someone to partner. You expect an assembly line of women waiting for their turn with you, not the other way around. The school's rules to attend pas classes have always been: -girls must be en pointe -guys must have a heartbeat Maybe now they'll have to create a tougher men's standard. In the meantime, send us any excess females you have handy who need a new "lift" in their dancing. Quote Link to comment
