About WSB’s Boys Ballet Program

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.

Boys dress code: black footless tights, white T-shirt, white socks and white slippers.

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. To this end, we are delighted to offer the expert instruction of Evan Swenson, former professional dancer with Atlanta Ballet, current dancer with Barak Ballet and resident guest artist at Westside, along with other expert faculty.Their wealth of experience is a valuable contribution to the development of our male students.
