Should someone whose goal is to become a choreographer work just as hard at becoming a better dancer? I have a few thoughts on the matter but I invite you to add your own, share what it means to be a great choreographer, and name a few so-so dancers turned choreographers. .
It is shocking to discover that people can be much more open and accepting than we give them credit for. It is important for the young male dancer to keep an open mind and allow room for people to accept and admire his dance talent. Remember, not everyone will approve, nor does everyone have to. But there are many art supporters, family and friends who will accept your dance talent as a gift and encourage you to use it to the fullest.
