A Few Testamonials


A B O U T  B O Y ‘ S  C L A S S

A Boys’ class is held once a week. All boys pre-ballet through the upper levels take the same class. The advanced boys stand in the front and the younger boys stand in the back. Elements of jump, turn and strength are focused on in the class. As the boys progress through the regular levels, (pre-ballet – level 8), time is taken at the end of the class to focus on men’s steps while the girls work on pointe.
