Danseur

Date/Time

Sep 17, 2019
07:00 PM until 09:00 PM

Description

Enter any dance studio in the United States and the classes will be brimming with little bunheads dreaming of crossing the stage at Lincoln Center. But you will be hard pressed to find a single boy among them. Danseur explores why in a country that strives for gender equality, where young women are encouraged to cross the gender barrier and participate in male-dominated fields, especially by their parents, does this disparity exist? Why is it more socially acceptable for parents (fathers in particular) to encourage their sons to participate in all other physical pursuits (ie: sports, fitness) but not the ballet?

Join Pennsylvania Ballet for a screening of Danseur, followed by a panel discussion with director Scott K. Gormley, Pennsylvania Ballet dancer Peter Weil (who is featured in the film), and Pennsylvania Ballet Artistic Director Angel Corella.
