it doesnt really matter until you get advanced enough to want to focus in on more advanced virtuoso male steps. you probably have a few years of basics before that'll really be an issue though and even if you can only find a female teacher, ballet is ballet!

Taking ballet from a female teacher is good but if you can take with a male ballet teacher as well it would to your advantage. Take regular ballet classes. Privates are good but I feel you learn more in a regular ballet classes because other dancers are being corrected and you can learm from their mistakes.

gosh when you are just starting, it really makes no difference. All the basics of ballet are the same regardless, so don't stress if you can't find a male teacher. You'll be doing the same as the girls regardless.

I went for a while to the Boca Ballet Theatre classes; I was working up there, and really liked their teaching staff; all female. I looked into the Ft. Lauderdale schools, which have a lot of male teachers, but as I live in Miami, it's all just too far when I have several options closer by. Personally, I think I prefer a female teacher, but I think it depends more on their attitude than their gender.

I've had both and the only important thing is their training, not their sex.
