Last quote by Alexei Ratmansky

Sorry, there is no such thing as equality in ballet: women dance on point, men lift and support women. women receive flowers, men escort women offstage. not the other way around (I know there are couple of exceptions). and I am very comfortable with that. But there are gender roles in traditional ballet. In other words, men and women are of equal value but have different tasks.feedback

There are so many things one could discuss around this topic. I agree that the rules are there to be broken, that's how art evolves. And I myself have enjoyed playing with these conventions. But I personally choose to work within a tradition because I find it too beautiful and historically important to be lost.”.
