Just as in RL, SL experiences trends – and dance is no exception.
As the end of the year approaches, I have noticed a definite up-tick in the number of troupes who are looking for male dancers.
The need for male dancers is nothing new and something I’ve mentioned before. There seems to be a real lack of men in dance. There have always been a few, but they have always been outnumbered by the number of female dancers.
However, in just the last week or so, I have come across notices from several troupes looking specifically for male dancers. I have also noticed a number of troupes who are doing more and more mixed gender dances than in the past.
So if you’re a frustrated female dancer, perhaps a male avi is the ticket to more opportunities?
Something to think about.
I’ll be watching to see how many performances have male dancers this weekend while I’m attending the Dance Queens festival.
Should be interesting!
(Btw, if you’re looking for some nice eye candy, a Google search for ‘male dancer’ might be just the ticket!) 😀
