Discover your full potential in a range of movement possibilities in these high-energy dance classes just for boys.

A call to boys who love to move! This class aims to get boys moving together creatively. It introduces boys to a range of dance techniques including movement improvisation, contemporary and African dance styles.

The class is led by one of New Zealand's most experienced dance educators, Clare Battersby, who is joined by guest male professional dance tutors.

Clare is inspired to get boys moving together creatively and intergenerationally, so they feel both motivated and inspired by their peers.

Similar classes for boys have proved extremely successful internationally. At The 2018 Child WDA International Dance Conference, international delegates praised the enthusiasm, creativity and dynamism of the Adelaide Urban Activators intergenerational boys dance group.

“Urban Activators provides an excellent service to our community by creating an environment where young boys and young men feel comfortable and challenged to participate in dance and creative expression.”
Susan R. Koff, Ed.D., Director Dance Education Program, NYU Steinhardt
