What is a male ballerina called?
Because you said "Ballerina" that means the top ballet dancer in a company. There can only be one Ballerina in a company. The male counterpart would be called a Danseur Nobel. Other male dancers would be called Danseurs, or by their rank such as Principal, Soloist or Corps de ballet or just ballet dancer. The same goes for the other women in the company. They would be just called ballet dancers or by their rank. Never a Ballerina.

A prima ballerina is the french term for a principle. When she has been appointed by the Director, that is when she becomes a Prima Ballarina. Even if a ballerina does lead ro…les, she may NOT be a PB. A prima ballerina was also a term placed upon a dancer by the Zar of russia along time ago
A male ballet dancer is called a danseur, French for dancer. sissy
There are several names for male dancers. Ballerino, Premier Danseur or just a male dancer.
Probably Vaslav Nijinsky or Mikael Baryshnikov, in my opinion.
The term "ballerina" is based off the word "ballet", with the suffix "-ina". "-ina" is a feminine suffix; note names such as "Katrina", "Sabrina", etc. Thus the term "ballerin…a" means simply "girl who does ballet".

Dreams use symbols to illustrate ideas. This dream might use the costume of a ballerina to indicate that the guy is "dancing around the issue." A variation of that idea would …be "fancy footwork," or clever maneuvering in order to accomplish a possibly shady deal.
