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."
