What are the common gender roles?

These are the first four photos I found when I searched in google “male and female dancers”. As you can see, all four of these photos involve the man supporting the woman with their bodies. The male is either picking the woman up or keeping her from falling. The type of gender roles are the male being taller and stronger than the woman and supporting her body with his. And the female being smaller and weaker. So you see that the women rely on the male to balance them and keep them off the ground. Is this seen in all types of dance?
