Abstract [en]

This essay is about gender in dance education. My purpose is to find out whether it´s possible for dance teachers at ”Estetiska programmet” to affect gender roles among the students. Are there any differences in the way teachers talk to boys compared to girls and do they use different kinds of dance movements depending on the students gender? I use the method literature studies to get a deep knowledge about gender research, and classroom observations to see how the teachers and students act. My conclusion is that it´s a problem of a very complex nature. Because of the low number of participating boys in dance education, teachers tend to adjust the teaching to the boys´ needs and wants. But these needs are maybe only a result of this societys ideas of how girls and boys ”are”.
