Male Voices dance series

Rhee Gold, a very well-known and respected dance instructor who owns The Gold School and who has some amazing resources for dancers and dance teachers, has produced this online series about young male dancers and what they go through.

This first episode is called "Confessions," and like most reality shows, introduces us to the young men we will be seeing in the series. They discuss why they started dancing and how hard it's been to be on the receiving end of criticism and teasing from others. Many girls forget that boys have to overcome that obstacle in order to pursue dance. As hard as it is for us to get to class, to pay for class, to struggle through class, we rarely have to fight the prejudice and stereotypes that are pinned on boys who dance.

I really enjoyed this and am looking forward to the next episode.

thanks for being so patient with us and most importantly given us important techniques.
yes, happy dancing.
