Nigel and Simon Lythgoe Talk about Male Dancers

This is a really interesting video which should spark an interesting discussion about the lack of male dancers out there. Plus, the stigma that’s associated with male dancers.

One of the most interesting things that Nigel said in the video was the reasoning for why he didn’t encourage his son to go into dance. Nigel is right about it on many levels. I’m glad that some of the misconception is changing, but it’s going to take a lot of time to change the stigmas. Shows like So You think You Can Dance and A Chance to Dance do a lot to help change people’s perspective on dance.

Check out the full season of Chance to Dance streamed online in case you missed it.
