The Boys' Project is an extension of the 10-month training program for children 8 years and older. 

Students new to the academy with no experience in ballet will be placed in the Boys' Project BLAST OFF! Program (ages 8-12), while students who have some experience in ballet need to schedule a placement audition before enrolling in a training program course.


The aim of the Boys' Project is to remove the obstacles of both male stereotypes in the classical dance forms of ballet, modern, and jazz, as well as the financial constraints associated with quality dance training. 


The BLAST OFF! program is designed to be a launchpad for boys ages 8-12 into the world of dance. Classes introduce ballet, modern and jazz technique in a gender-specific curriculum with primarily male instructors. The program includes 1-hour classes held weekly for 12-week sessions.

The BLAST OFF! Boys Project is funded in part by the Northfield Bank Foundation.


The Boys Project is designed to promote male participation in dance. Through financial support, role modeling, and a gender specific curriculum, boys can enjoy the finest in classical male dance training. The program is available for male students ages, 8-21, through recommendation, application and audition. 

Coursework includes boys' and men's classes, gender-specific conditioning, partnering and repertory (as appropriate for level). All students ages 8 and older are required to participate in end-of-year ballet assessments adjudicated by the Artistic Director and faculty in order to determine progress and advancement. Students are divided by level of experience.
