Dancing is for boys too! At MSAOD we have a "boys only" technique class available and boys are also welcome to dance in all of our other classes. All MSAOD teachers are trained to teach both boys and girls to enjoy and excel at a variety of dance styles.
If your son is interested in dance, be supportive and help him experience all the fun and energy dance class can bring.
BOYS TECHNIQUE CLASS Classes are held on Saturday's and is structured to build strength, flexibility, endurance and confidence along with the discipline, focus and drive found in professional male athletes and dancers. This class is open to all boys ages 8 and up and is a great supplement to any other dance class or sport.
Other classes which are available;
Pre-School Ballet & Tap
HOW WE MAKE BOYS WELCOME AT MSAOD If your child is interested in dancing but feels nervous about attending a class because they are a boy, we understand! Unfortunately, there are sometimes negative reactions to boys and men who are interested in dance. We're doing our best to overcome that at MSAOD and encourage all our young men in a warm, friendly & nurturing environment.
ENTHUSIASTIC, ENCOURAGING TEACHERS All of our dance teachers love to dance! They pass along that love and energy to every student, regardless of their gender. All our teachers are trained to help male dancers use their strength and energy to express themselves and successfully enjoy dancing.
HOW DANCING CAN HELP OTHER SPORTS If your child is active in a sport like football, rugby, athletics or gymnastics; dancing can help them excel there too. Team sports and dance are both very physically challenging and require a high level of skill and movement. We remind our male students that many professional sports teams use dance styles like ballet to help their athletes improve their strength and flexibility.
WEAR COMFORTABLE CLOTHES We want to make sure every dancer is comfortable in their dance attire and ensure all show costumes chosen for male dancers are appropriate and comfortable as well. You can read about our uniform for students here.
TRY A CLASS FOR FREE If your son is interested in dancing but isn't sure if it's for them, they can try a class for free. They can even bring a friend! Sometimes boys lose their hesitancy to try a dance class if they have a friend with them, then they can open up and experience the joy of dance. Dancing can help your child improve their physical fitness, coordination, balance, and flexibility. Beyond the physical benefits, boys can also learn new ways to express themselves creatively, are encouraged to make friends they may not have made under other circumstances and improve their confidence.
