At BBA we offer a 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. We will allocate the student to a class level suitable, depending on factors such as age and current grade of ballet/experience in dance.
The classes we offer are of a specialist structured programme, tailored to the male ballet dancer, with the opportunity to focus on male ballet technique and choreography.
Our boys-only classes, taught by a male teacher, are designed to progress the boys with a good understanding of male ballet technique and develop the attributes required for that of a male ballet dancer.
Our termly classes run on a fortnightly basis.
