We are excited to announce we are now offering a Boys Only Ballet Class!

This is an incredible opportunity for boys!  It will be offered for free for the rest of the month 🙂

Boys are taking dance classes more than ever before and Ballet offers many benefits:

Helps create fluid movement
Improves flexibility
Provides a TOTAL body workout
Improves posture
Improves strength and endurance
Improves coordination

(All of which can help them in other sports!)

The class will be taught by Judson Veach!  Below is his bio:

Judson Veach trained for 11 years with Columbus Dance Theatre (CDT) where he studied under his father and Artistic Director, Tim Veach, as well as teachers Anne Adair, Kennet Oberly, Roberta Taylor, Scott Brown and other CDT faculty.

After completing two years as an apprentice at CDT, he went on to a year of study on full scholarship at the School of American Ballet. While there, he danced the principal role in Atonement by Canadian choreographer Josh Bemish as part of the New York City Ballet’s Choreographic Workshop.

He has danced roles in a variety of classical repertoire including Flower Festival and Kermesse in Brugges, and has worked extensively under various contemporary choreographers including Mark Diamond, Jean Pierre Bonnefoux, Kristina Isabelle, Kennet Oberly, Stella Kane and Tim Veach.

He danced the role of Dream Hansel in Opera Columbus’ Hansel and Gretel and danced the role of Puck in A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Lancaster Arts Festival in 2004. Judson attended The Julliard School Summer Dance Intensive in 2007 where he studied with Andra Corvino, Alexandra Wells and Alexander Proia. In the summer of 2008 he attended the Chautauqua Summer Dance Institute where he was awarded the Chautauqua Dance Circle Scholarship. In 2009 he received a full scholarship to the summer and year round programs at the School of American Ballet studying under Peter Martins, Jock Soto, Andrej Kramarevsky, Sean Lavery, Johnathan Stafford and Peter Frame.

After attending the summer intensive program at Nashville Ballet in 2010, he joined the company as an apprentice the same year, and was promoted to full company member in 2011. His credits at Nashville Ballet include dancing Arabian in Nashville’s Nutcracker and the Watusi man in Salsa Dreams.
