  1. I have a boys ballet program in my ballet school, En Pointe School of Ballet in West Jordan, Utah. I currently have 7 boys ages 8-13 in a Boys Only ballet class instructed by a male teacher. I also have 2 young adult male students in my adult ballet class. They all perform in a ballet each spring. Last year we performed Swan Lake and my adult young men performed the roles of Rothbart and Prince Siegfried. The pas de deux performances were breathtaking. The younger boys class performed as the Prince’s Archers and also Russian Dancers at the Royal Ball. To see pictures, visit my blog
