(upbeat music) Voiceover: Most people think of ballet as a ballerina dancing on point in a tutu. But male dancers are an equallyimportant part of every ballet company. (energetic music) Chase: People underestimatethe athleticism and strength that ittakes to be a male dancer. Craig: Crazy lifts, lifts with one hand,
the girl was upside down, thegirl was in between your legs. All of these turns, spinning likea top, and jumping in the air. Chase: It's a lot work. We have to do the jumps and the turns, everything that's that physical anddemanding, but do it with finesse. Amar: To have somebodyin the audience cry, Chase: From a movement. Amar: From a movement, andthat's the journey that we're on.
Craig: That's what attractedto New York City Ballet, because the guys, they gotto dance a lot on stage; they weren't just behind the ballerina, or the backdrop holding a basket just watching the other dancers. Joaquin: You never get bored here. That's what's challenging fun, butalso painful at times. (laughs) Jenifer: Men tend to have a shorter career
just because their dancing ismore punishing for the body, because if you think about it, they're either jumping or they'vegot a girl up over their head. It's a lot harder on themthan it is for the women, because obviously we're not haulingother people around on our backs. Chase: Also, as a male dancer, what we try to havecome across, that it's Amar: That you can be aman, and you can be strong,
but you can also be soft and vulnerable. Robert: I never told anybody growing up in schoolthat I did ballet or jazz because if you want to be a dancer, and you're a guy, you'regoing to be an outcast. I remember there was a windowinto the ballet studio, and I was taking ballet andsome of the guys came over and were pointing and theywere laughing, and that sucks.
Harrison: When I was a kidI was teased all the time, I wore jazz shoes, I would walkaround on point all the time, but my parents were greatbecause they told me, quot;Well, that makes you happy, go for it.quot; But it caused my childhood tobe a little disrupted, I think, because I just wanted to be a performer. Amar: I'm a Bronx boy, and ballet is not something that you think as a profession.
