Boys-Only Ballet

Boys-only Ballet

Beginning and Intermediate/Advanced Technique, All Designed Exclusively for Boys!

Coordinator: Adrian Blake Mitchell

About WSB’s Boys Ballet Program

Ages 5-19.

Boys Ballet classes emphasize posture, alignment, proper execution, fundamentals, port de bras, strength, and classroom etiquette. Includes attention to foot articulation and usage, and some stretching.

All boys are encouraged to attend Jazz for a well-rounded dance experience.

Refer to our children’s class schedule for all classes offered.

These boys-only classes promote the knowledge and practice of ballet, with an emphasis on proper alignment, coordination and athleticism. While the basic syllabus is the same for beginning male and female students, the contrast between male and female dancing is increasingly emphasized as a student progresses.

The personal example of the teacher is of paramount importance. Their wealth of experience is a valuable contribution to the development of our male students.

To qualify for our Nutcracker and Spring Performance at BroadStage, boys ages 8 (Level 3) and above must additionally attend a full-time schedule of co-ed classes. Boys may evaluate for these classes in an age appropriate level. 

Dress code: black footless tights, white T-shirt, white socks and white ballet shoes.

Boys’ tuition for the 23/24 school year is offered free of charge. Additionally, tuition for the 2024 summer intensives is offered free of charge.
