More Information

The CDE believes that these classes are essential in the development of a young male dancer’s technique. The instructors, both current and former male dancers from Atlanta Ballet’s professional company, are both mentors and examples of what today’s young male dancer can aspire to become. The Boys’ classes meet for one hour per week. Students enrolled in a boys class should also enroll in at least one age appropriate ballet class.

Boys Level II students must participate in a placement class or receive an instructor recommendation for this level.

Two 1-hr classes per week are recommended for Boys Level II and Advanced students.

All enrolled students have the opportunity to participate in Spring Concert. Rehearsals begin in January 2022.

Schedule and faculty subject to change based on enrollment.
