A young male dancer, is nowdays known as just that ' A Dancer'.The formal name is 'DANSEUR' but it is really a bit over the top for everyday use. The only thing to REALLY remember is NOT to call a male dancer a BALLERINA. This name not only is incorrect, it creates the wrong perception of the male dancer. That is soft, girly and fairy like. Male dancers are actually nothing of the sort, irrespective of their sexual preference.

According to Wikipedia and The Free Dictionary the proper name for a male Ballet dancer is "danseur".

You can also refer to a male ballet dancer as a "Balleroux" (Prenounced bah-leh-ROO)

There are several terms--"danseur," "ballerino," "male ballet dancer." Or just "dancer." I know an especially popular and fitting one--"brave."
