If you spend your whole life worrying about what people think of you, keeping up images, working, doing things you think you should do but don't enjoy, etc., your life will whizz on by and you'll realize you never made time to do all those little things you always wanted to do, such as join ballet
I take ballet and we always need more guys!!! In fact, my dance teachers son joined a few years ago (he's in high school) and he's now dating one of our really good pointe dancers. Obviously, he is not gay. And you could also take modern ballet, a less feminine dance style. Do it! Just do it! #noregrets
It's not gay. In fact, a lot of professional athletes who are men do ballet. It really does help maintain shape. Plus, you get to see all the girls in their tight costumes, if that's gay, I don't know what isn't.
And anyways what's the big deal if some idiots think you're gay. It's not a bad think to be gay, so if you're not gay just ignore it and don't feel offended. Yeah there's a lot of gays who like ballet, but it's the same way with straight men. It's just a stereotype, don't let it bother you.
