Switched Roles

This is one of the only pictures I could find that involved the female lifting the male. These gender roles in dance give off the idea that females are not capable of being equally strong or stronger than the male. To me, this picture is very powerful. It challenges┬áthe idea that males are the ones that should be lifting and supporting the woman. To others it might be uncomfortable to see because it challenges the norms. But does that make it bad? Almost every new dance that enters the dance world challenges what the norm before. That’s why we find that these specific gender roles aren’t always portrayed in dance.
