MEN’S PROGRAM

Overview

The Portland Ballet offers a rare program for men only. Affectionately called the “Wolfpack,” classes are taught by men for men that address their specific needs.

TPB Academy Principal Jason Davis and the rest of the dedicated men’s program faculty teach skills that are particularly designed to develop strength, poise and discipline appropriate to male dancers (ages 3-22). Davis teaches partnering and technique passed down from Jorge Esquivel, Mikko Nissinen and Mr. Roudolf Kharatian.

The youngest of the pack are dubbed Wolfcubs.

Men’s Program Levels

Creative Ballet (Ages 3 – 6)
Ongoing 8 week sessions for $105

Advancement is based on ability, not age. Some students spend more than two years in one level as their minds and bodies develop and adapt to working in harmony, while others progress more quickly. Once a student has mastered the ballet technique appropriate for a level and is strong enough to accomplish particular movements, he will be moved up at the Artistic Directors’ discretion.
