We see these gender roles in dance, but the dance world is constantly expanding and creating new dances, where we see more equality between genders. I think in western culture we are used to the idea of the males being the one who supports the woman and that’s why we see it so often. But in other cultures men and woman don’t even dance together. And in certain types of dance, we see that the same genders can dance together and have it be accepted. Although these gender roles are seen in dance, dance gives people the ability to express different types of gender roles or express no roles at all. That’s why dance is such a powerful form of art.
