“Thank you so so so much because I used to think that ballet was really girly and it’s definitely inspired me!”
“Thank you for coming. I now want to maybe be a ballet dancer when I am older. Hope you had fun teaching us.”
“I loved all the dances you taught us, especially the wave dance and I now know ballet is also for boys. Have you ever thought of going on Britain’s got Talent?”

BalletBoyz is developing a brand new set of online resources that will support the delivery of dance in schools at KS2, 3 and 4 connecting young people and teacher’s across the country with high quality, interactive dance lessons. Filmed ‘in class’ with dancer’s from the company, these digital lessons will guide teacher’s through how to deliver a selection of creative and choreographic tasks to their group. Teachers and pupils will also be able to watch demonstrations performed by the company, inspirational clips of their stage performances and gain access to behind the scenes rehearsal footage and interviews with chorographers.

Whether you are a dance specialist looking for lesson inspiration or a PE teacher required to deliver dance these resources are for everyone.

Stay in the loop! Register your interest and we will let you know when the resources are ready to use.
