“For the first time there was a set of rules and a precise way to do things. This was my first taste of the Vaganova method and I remember just how well Judy taught me and how to discipline myself which gave me the foundations that I needed to start training professionally. I owe a lot to her."
- Former student Oscar, now dancing with Bolshoi Ballet
At HBA we've always had boys at the centre of our focus in training our ballet students. From as young as 4 years old, boys can join HBA classes taking lessons both with girls and also additional boys' classes.
This forms the foundation of their training, developing musicality, strength, coordination, and artistry.
They can pursue classical ballet either as an enjoyable and valuable weekly hobby or as a more serious vocation, as did our latest graduate Oscar (featured below), who is now a professional dancer in the world-famous Bolshoi Ballet Company in Moscow.
