Hello. I'm a 31 year old male. I'm interesting in dance training.

basically I've been looking at the films "staying alive" starring John Travolta

and the TV Series "Fame" starring Gene Anthony Ray

and basically i like their dance outfits. They're very masculine looking

i think the the thing that scares men away from doing Jazz, ballet, modern is seeing men

who dress like this.

basically...i feel that the outfits that John & Gene wore were more masculine looking. the color combination, the style of leg warmers, the type of jazz boots they wore. they were on point.

the most masculine aspect is the color combination and the loose fit tights from the knee to the ankle. it's less feminine looking.

here are some videos on gene anthony ray wearing tights that were loose around the ankle.


i'm curious...how would i find tights like this? i don't see male jazz dancers wearing them

i see men with the ballerina looking black tights. can anybody help me out?

check out these videos..gene anthony ray. In the season's 3 thru 6..

They're jazz pants. Fitted through the hip and thigh, loose from the knee down.
