Boys, Men & Pas de deux!
EPB is unique due to our hugely successful program for male dancers with over 30 boys & men. If your son wants to learn to dance, or wants to improve his ballet technique and experience, this is an exceptional environment and opportunity for him.
Boys need to be in ballet classes with other boys to embrace the masculinity & athleticism of ballet. Our belief and philosophy for training boys is that boys absolutely need to be in classes with other boys. When a young boy who loves to dance looks around and sees that he is surrounded by girls, all dressed in pink, he begins to question his desire to dance and typically comes to the conclusion that ballet is for girls. We have solved that problem with our "Boys Only" and men's classes that have been a part of our curriculum since 2012.
En Pointe is the perfect place for a boy to fully embrace the athleticism and masculine aspects of ballet. They learn discipline, focus, and respect for the art form of ballet as well as musicality, coordination, strength and increased flexibility. Every boy should learn to dance as it greatly enriches their lives in so many ways. We are committed to teaching quality technique in an uplifting & encouraging environment that encourages self worth, dedication and integrity.
Our Men's teacher, David Woods is a former professional ballet dancer and also instructs pilates. He teaches our men's technique classes and partnering classes. We have 4 levels of weekly pas de deux partnering classes.
Our male dancers have the opportunity to perform masculine roles in a full length story ballet each spring with acting and dancing and also partnering with our pointe students. Our men have the opportunity to audition and perform principal and solo roles as well as many fun character roles.
If you enjoy theater or acting, there is a good chance you would enjoy performing in our ballets. If you enjoy ballroom dancing, ballet partnering is very similar and will greatly benefit your ballroom technique and lifts. Ballet helps improve strength and agility for sports. Ballet classes are great for developing balance, agility, jumping higher and quick footwork.
Our boys and men's ballet classes are designed specifically for male dancers and emphasize strengthening, stretching, and correct ballet technique in a fun atmosphere where boys can feel comfortable dancing and learning ballet, with other boys.
Our philosophy is the preservation of long standing ballet traditions and classical technique. We are the only studio in West Jordan specializing exclusively in Classical Ballet with full-length professional ballet performances in June and Nutcracker in December.
FYI, we sell ballet dancewear and shoes for boys and men in our boutique. Come try a free month to see you our male dancer program is the right fit for you!
