At Boys Ballet Academy (BBA) we offer structured training in a fun and supportive environment. All boys aged between 4-17 yrs are welcome and encouraged to try a class with us whether they are an experienced dancer or a complete beginner. With a nurturing approach, we will allocate the student to a class that is suitable, depending on factors such as age and ability/level.
The classes we offer are of a specialist non-syllabus, yet structured programme, tailored to the male ballet dancer, with the opportunity to focus on male ballet technique and choreography.
Our specialist boys-only classes, taught by a male teacher, are designed to progress the boys with a good understanding of male ballet technique and the develop the attributes required for that of a male ballet dancer.
As the boys progress, they will have the opportunity to participate in the BBA Awards Programme and at each stage, the boys will receive a BBA certificate in recognition of their achievements and development in dance.
