We have two classes based in Belfast aimed at boys including a NEW one for boys aged 7 – 11 years. Our popular Summer Session week is back this July.  All welcome! See below for more details.

It is often difficult for boys to opt to get involved in dance and other creative activities, as they are encouraged instead towards sports. If they do get involved they are often the only boy in a class full of girls. By setting up Belfast Boys in 2017 we wanted to positively discriminate towards them, spark their interest, and help them to see dance as a skillful, physically challenging and really enjoyable activity.
