Best Answer

The term "danseur" is a French term meaning "male Ballet dancer." Just as "danseuse" is the female equivalent. And the term "ballerina" actually is an Italian phrase for the PRINCIPAL female ballet dancer. But it has since been used by now to label ANY female taking ballet. Still, just as "ballerina" is a female ballet dancer--"ballerino" is the male equivalent in Italian.
