Best Answer

They can be called Danseur's, some call them Ballerino's... but many male dancer's don't like that. Or they can be called just- Male Dancer.

I was a professional dancer for 11 years and I appreciated Danseur, it's more respectful. Ballerino sounds to much like Ballerina.

Because you said "Ballerina" that means the top ballet dancer in a company. There can only be one Ballerina in a company. The male counterpart would be called a Danseur Nobel.

They would be just called ballet dancers or by their rank. Never a Ballerina.
