Best Answer

It can be for girls or boys, but some boys take Ballet to help improve other sports.

Answer:No, it is not a sport for girls. But many people feel that because now it is usually girls who join. It used to be in Russia that only guys would join, there would be few girls. It was also the greatest honor was for your kid to be- in the Russian army, or- to be in Russian ballet. It takes a lot of strength and endurance. Many girls are scared away by that fact after the try it. Also, many football players do it to build up their muscles. And I would just like to point out- ballet is technically not a sport.

Yes a lot of the time because girls will make sexist jokes towards a guy if he joins the ballet or cheer leading team, and boys will make sexist jokes towards girls who want to play football, baseball, or any other "manly" sport, which of course, there is no such thing as a "manly" or "girls" sport. That's why they're just called sports.

If ballet is a dance and dance is a sport does that mean ballet is a sport?

Although people may think of ballet as a sport, surprisingly and technically dance is a performing art, not a sport. However, dance as well as specifically ballet requires energy, you also have to make it look easy and flawless, which makes it harder than all sports. This is because dance and ballet is not done to win but to become stronger and entertain. Those who compete might be able to say it's a sport, however this isn't the primary idea of ballet. Ballet is generally known as an art form because of it's beauty and style, this is the same with many other styles of dance.
