At BalletBoyz, we believe that dance can and should be made accessible to everyone.
In the past, we have offered local, regional and national creative learning programmes, classes, workshops, inclusive dance and bespoke schools projects, dance for people with Parkinson’s and a Youth Company.
No matter who you are, you can take part and dance with us.

Our Parkinson's CAN Dance classes provide opportunities for people with Parkinson's to enjoy dance and live music in a supportive and creative environment.
You can also enjoy our classes from home by using our online resource on www.moovbank.com
