Are There Any Boys Only Dance Classes?

Sep 16, 2008
When doing any new activity or embarking on a new journey it's always nice to see people we can relate to or that are similar to us. Which is why boys and men are always more keen to go to dance classes if they know they won't be the only male in the room.

Sadly I've never heard of a boys-only dance class and even if they do exist they would be the exception rather than the rule. I have seen a few dance classes for girls-only but these are very sensual classes which explore femininity through movement. I doubt there are any such classes for men!

Which means that if you're a boy, you'll have to go to dance classes with women in it as well as another men. Unless of course you go down the route of private dance classes where you can learn 1 to 1 with a dance teacher.

So if you can't dance and you're a man is it really any more embarrassing having other females see it as well as men? Well no not really, if anything women respect a man that tries.

Even if you're useless at dancing, by going to dance classes you show that you're trying to do something about it. Everyone who's ever been to a dance class knows that there's a learning curve and you won't look good straight away. You have to look bad before you can look good.

The fact that there are other women in the class should not be seen as a bad thing. You'll often find that they're not necessarily better at dance classes than the men, the men may even be better in some cases.

At the end of the day, dance is cross-gender and something we're all free to explore and enjoy. If you're a man you'll almost certainly find that there'll be other men in the class if the dance class is bigger than about 10 people. Even if you're the only male that shouldn't matter, if you want to learn it you have to learn to ignore these minor details.

Dancing is something a lot of people are self-conscious about and you can bet that the other people in the class will be far more worried about how they are looking than to be too concerned about what you're doing.

So go on and take the leap, find a class that you think you'll enjoy and then walk in. If there's other men then great, if not then you can be the man to change that!
