Where to Find Boys’ Dance Classes Near Greenville, SC

Posted on | 2 Comments

Have a boy who likes to dance? It can be hard to be the only boy in a dance class, and as a result, many boys don’t want to try a dance class. Kidding Around found a few studios in Spartanburg and Greenville that offer dance classes just for boys. Below you’ll find a list of places where boys will find dance classes just for them.

Giving Your Son The Gift Of Dance

As adults, we all wish to impress on the dance floor at weddings and other functions. Why not give your son the gift of dance at a young age? Whether they continue with dance lessons to a professional level, the things they learn can be applied elsewhere.

Boy-Exclusive Dance Classes

Most dance studios will accept boys into any class they offer, but having a class exclusively made up of boys allows some boys to learn better.

Dance offers so many benefits:

  • For a child interested in sports, it offers agility and so many other things that can be applied elsewhere.
  • Dance can help teach your child confidence. Nothing is more impressive to girls than a boy who knows what he’s doing on the dance floor!
  • Dance teaches musicality if they are interested in playing a musical instrument.

If dance is something that your son has a passion for, the opportunities are endless. Scholarships, grants, and other opportunities are almost thrown at male dancers because there are so few of them.

We just checked and while this class has been on the schedule in the past it’s not currently on the schedule due to lack of demand. However, if anyone is interested in a boys class at Ballet Spartanburg they are welcome to call Lona Gomez @583-0339. They will offer a class again if there is enough interest.
