Subject: Thank you for making the effort to recruit boys! My ds (now a WQ) started after hearing a celtic band. He wound up on stage with the band. I thought being the only boy would bother him but it never did. But (more inside)

. . .he loves the all boy workshops and opportunities to get the guys together and play football or wall ball and do some dancing too. Emphasizing that ID training will improve stamina for other sports may help - my son sometimes describes it as "cross-training" to his soccer buddies even though he really dances for the love of it. Highlighting boys at shows helps. Be sure your school is careful not to send messages like "All dancers should wear poodle socks and wigs . . .." He always threatens to show up in a wig although he hasn't actually done it yet. :)

[> [> we have the same problem here - male to female ratio ... well its like 12 to 1. -- ..., 01:18:39 03/23/10 Tue [1]

We now have two boys in our school now.... one is 19 and one is 12..... motivations are different. 19 yr old is because he thinks if he is good enough he can join a show and tour the world whilst getting paid.. .12 year old is my son, so hes there anyway, might as well dance.

Funnily enough, the 12 year old has a great eye for what works and what does't makeup, dress and choreography wise, but ask him to actually pick up his feet in class and you might as well cut his legs off.

Both boys love to perform, and we always get the most audence applause for the boys... all our workshops are run by male tachers as it gives the boys a role model as well.
