Discipline & Focus

Dance can provide a great outlet to energetic boys, through this art form their energy can be transformed into something positive. Developing a strong sense of self discipline and focus is a key part of learning the art.

Strength & Endurance

Boys bring a power and force to dance and a great deal of total body muscular strength is gained through ballet techniques.

Coordination and Balance

Through dance a boy will gain greater control over his body. Continuous fluid movement is also acquired in dance, as well as speedy footwork skills, valuable skills that not only benefit a dancer but also improve performance in other sports.
