THE STUDIO, SCHOOL OF CLASSICAL BALLET
BOYS BALLET PROGRAM
Course Description

Mens Class

Boys study ballet alongside girls for many reasons, most importantly that many of the objectives of successful training are the same for both genders.  Boys have to be strong, coordinated, flexible and musically artistic, just like girls.  We offer a special weekly class for boys only on Saturdays.  The students must be at least 4 years of age.  Our advanced-level company men assist in this class and act as mentors.  

For young men in Levels V and VI, weekly Mens class is offered as part of the regular curriculum.  A variety of male skills is the focus, including upper body strengthening exercises, strength of relevé and ballon, coordination and presentation.  Extra time is dedicated to flexibility.  Performance footage of proficient and famous male dancers is studied.  Exercises which build stamina and perseverance are tackled each week.
