Boys Program

Full Scholarships Available

We know how important it is for young male ballet dancers to feel supported in their pursuit of dance, which is often not fully understood by their peers. That is why we offer ballet classes specifically for boys, taught by highly qualified male faculty. While boys are welcome at all levels of the school, beginning at age 8 the boys' program provides supplemental all-boys classes. When the young men are physically ready, they begin to receive specialized training in men's ballet technique, pas de deux (partnering), and upper body conditioning.
