Maria Aleksandrovich
Jacek Kowalczyk


Ballet, classical dance, as an art and a profession tries to keep up with modernity, while maintaining its unique, classic style. In the public perception, however, ballet remains an enigmatic art. Ballet performers are themselves aware that their passion and stage image are particularly susceptible to stereotypes. The interest of the media and of scholarship causes dancers more and more often to debunk myths, modify the styles of practicing the art of ballet, and work on their own personality. All these things they do just to surprise the average audience, ballet lovers, journalists and scholars. From an academic point of view, the perspectives of those who do not dance are worthy of study as well. The aim of the present research was to identify the most common stereotypical associations with the words “ballet”, “ballerina”, “ballet master”. Fifty-five people (forty-nine women, six men) aged from 19 to 48 (average age 25.2) from Pomeranian University in Słupsk took part in the study.
