Will ballet give me a nice bottom?

I'm 15 (male) - and I'm just starting to dance. I'm taking jazz & ballet, each class once a week, because that's all my family can afford. For my first class I wore sweatpants, but I know that I should wear tights so my teacher can see my muscles and make sure I'm doing everything right. That's fine with me - except I'm really self conscience about my butt. It's not very strong (i'm scrawny) and I don't fill up my pants at all (around my booootaaay), so I was just wondering, ballet works your butt right?

Maybe it's a stupid question, but I'm just really nervous about starting so late, and I want to be really good.

Thanks everyone for your help. xoxox.

After a while ...yes ballet will make your butt look more like a bubble! Hard to explain.

So what got you into ballet classes? Do you like it?? DO you like jazz or ballet more?

Keep us posted

hey, sweatpants aren't great, but instead of tights, why not wear gym shorts. They'll show your legs so your teacher can make corrections for you. And you don't have to feel self conscious about your butt cause gym shorts really aren't form fitting or anything. Then as you firm up and feel better, you can transition into tights.

Try rolling up your tights with an elastic band around your waist, the tights eats into your buttocks so you don't have a unibutt look.
Keep on dancing and exercise at home too instead of just in class, in time you will find you are in so better a shape with your whole body instead of just your gluts.

Ballet will give you alot more than a firm butt, it will also give you strong legs, perfect posture, and poise. And don't forget many girlfriends.
