My husband and I want to sign our little boy (soon to be 4) up for dance. He's been begging to take dance lessons (he likes to watch dance mom's with me...that's where he learned about it). He likes the acrobatic moves, so I'm thinking tumbling for sure. But he also likes the lyrical/ballet dances too. My husband says ballet would be really good for him if he wants to do football/soccer in the future. So I'm think a ballet class too. I am really excited because I know he'll love it. Well I was talking to a co-worker and she flipped out. She was like you'd put a boy in ballet... She said I'd make him gay and I was feminizing him. She said she's all for boys doing dance but they do hip hop and tap only. WTF? Why? I don't think ballet with change my son's sexual orientation....he's only almost 4 but trust me he's into girls and a total flirt. He'll love being in a class surrounded by little girls to flirt with. And I don't think ballet will make him a sissy either. He's very strong willed, and if anything it will teach him discipline and sensitivity which are areas of weakness currently for him. But this co-worker was just indiginate that I would put my boy in a ballet class. Whatever...my kid my choice. But now I'm curious...what are your thoughts?? Would you let your son take ballet?
