Are you the ballerina in your dream? If so, you are indicating a very graceful heart and the ability to find self-discipline in order to conquer a situation in your life you are anticipating with reticence. Dreaming of watching a ballerina indicates that you are seeing a graceful aspect of yourself that you are as yet unaware you possess. Your life is going according to plan so relax and make changes gently as you see fit. Dreaming that you are unable to stop dancing indicates that you may work too hard and expect too much of yourself at times.
Psychological / emotional perspective: We are aware of the creative side of ourselves and the need for controlled movement, yet in some ways it is separate from us. We are in touch with the expressiveness of our own inner being.
Gives gender - specific: Modern ballet is a powerful medium with which to signify emotion, so in a man’s dream a male ballet dancer will represent his more powerful emotions, whereas a ballerina is more likely to suggest his anima. In a woman’s dream, however, the male dancer might suggest the animus, while the ballerina suggests the more elusive side of her personality.
