These types of gender roles are most often seen in Ballet. Ballet is a widely known art form that has been going on since the 1500s. This type of dance is elegant, formal, and quite beautiful to watch. As you see in these photos, the male is taller and either picking up or holding the female. Both male and female ballet dancers have to be extremely strong to do this dance. But the male is most always seen as the one that is stronger because he is always lifting the woman. Why do we see these gender roles? Imagine that the roles were switched. How does that make you feel?
