Have a boy who likes to dance? It can be hard to be the only boy in a dance class, and as a result a lot of boys don’t want to try dance class. But Kidding Around’s Melanie Coblentz found that there are a few studios in Spartanburg that offer dance classes just for boys. Below you’ll find a list of places where boys will find dance classes just for them.
Max & Val Chmerkovskiy
If you recognize any of the names on this list, it’s most likely for their dancing skills. Their impressive dancing skills.
As adults, we all wish we could impress on the dance floor at weddings and other functions. Why not give your son the gift of dance at young age? Regardless of whether they continue with dance lessons through to a professional level, the things they learn can be applied elsewhere.
Boys in Dance
Most dance studios will accept boys into any class they offer, but having a class that is exclusively made up of boys, allows them to learn better. My son has been in dance classes half of his life with several different studios. We have found that when the classes are co-ed, the majority of the attention is given to the girls and it’s hard to learn that way.
Dance offers so many benefits. For a child who is 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.
