My Boy Can Dance

Let’s get more boys dancing! My Boy Can posts this message, something that all dancers can agree with:

MY BOY CAN was created because our sons aged 4 were told by children and adults that ‘only girls do dancing’ ‘ boys can’t do ballet, it’s for girls’ ‘dancing means your gay’ AND we were concerned by this and saw how this directly impacted on our sons’ confidence and understanding of what it is to dance. Since speaking to different dancers, dancers’ families and dance teachers, it has become clear that unfortunately there is a negative stigma for our boys to dance. It is seen as challenging their gender stereotype and often boys face bullying or negativity as a result of attending dance classes. MY BOY CAN wants to change this and bring together dancers and families to share in saying My Boy Can dance and we support him.
