Boys Ballet Program

Boys Ballet Program

We believe dance plays an important role in the development of happy, healthy children. That’s why we offer ballet classes for boys ages 5-12 with the highest quality instruction in a nurturing and encouraging environment. Goal-setting, coordination, cooperation, and self-discipline are just a few of the many advantages your son or grandson will enjoy. Plus, it’s a lot of fun, too!

2021-22 Young Men’s Class Schedule


This program hooked me on ballet at a young age and prepared me for a complete dance education. It’s important for young male dancers to be around others like them, and the friendships I formed with the other boys in my class are even stronger today. So very proud of Attila and Grand Rapids Ballet School for growing this successful program.
