It is our goal to also return to a once a week a Men’s Class.  Basic training is the same for beginning male and female students, but as students progress technically, there are differences between male and female dancing. At San Jose Dance Theatre, our Men’s Class is specially designed for the technical skills needed for male ballet dancer; strength, flexibility, turns, jumps, acting/pantomime on the stage, basic partnering of the female dancer. A minimum of three boys is required to run this class.
