Ballet Dancers

Ballerino

A ballet dancer (Italian: ballerina fem., ballerino masc.) is a person who practices the art of ballet.
Traditional, gender-specific titles are used for ballet dancers.
Since ballerino is not used in English, it does not enjoy the same connotation as ballerina. A regular male dancer in Italy is called a danzatore, while ballerino usually denotes a male ballet dancer in Italy. In the English speaking world, boys or men who dance classical ballet are usually referred to as (male) ballet dancers. Often “ballerino” is used in English-based countries as slang.
