Is there a difference in the type of moves that male and female ballet dancers use? I'm thinking of having my MC who is a male do ballet but I want to make sure that I know the correct techniques and words first. Thank you so much for your help!

Hi there!

Most moves and steps are the same and ballet terminology is universal. Men’s dance only has many more big jumps. Even if ballerinas perform them too from time to time, they are usually boys’ territory. Some examples are Cabriolé, Barrel Turns (and their 540 variation), Tours en l’air and double or triple Tours en l’air.  

(Ivan Vasiliev’s double cabriole in Flames of Paris)

(Vladimir Shklyarov’s barrels in Le Corsaire)

You can see a lot of these spectacular jumps in Le Corsaire or in Spartacus

Hope this helps!
