2024-25 SEASON COMING SOON

Age is the only requirement for this level; no prior experience is required.

Boys should enroll in a co-ed class according to age (Nurture Pathway) or placement (Cultivate Pathway).

Shirt: Wear a solid-colored fitted t-shirt or tank in white or black or the co-ed level color.

Shoes: Black or flesh canvas ballet flats for classes. Black shoes are needed for recital. Sometimes, other colors are necessary for performances based on character/roles.

Pants: Sweatpants, joggers, or activewear pants that are at least knee-length. Pants should not be too long to get under a dancer's heels. Athletic shorts are acceptable with compression shorts underneath. Tights are acceptable with cotton or other shorts worn over.

See dress code for more information on this policy and to view all levels.

In the spring semester, dancers will learn one recital dance during their weekly class to perform in a recital in April. Boys will perform with their co-ed classes. One Saturday dress rehearsal (usually 1-2 weeks before recitals, depending on how Easter falls) is the only commitment outside of consistent class attendance that is required for the recital.

Boys need a pair of black jazz pants or dance trousers for recital (purchase on your own). Doxa will purchase a shirt for each boy, the cost of which is part of tuition rates. There will be no separate costume fees beginning in the 2023-24 Season.
