BalletBoyz: The Next Generation

We’ve been doing a lot of thinking over here about what it takes to be a male dancer.  With our upcoming performances from all-male dance company BalletBoyz in the Ahmanson Theatre November 7-9th, we’ve been shifting our focus onto all the amazing men in dance – past and present.  Of course, we have our favorites, Baryshnikov, Ángel Corella, Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Jacques d’Amboise… The list goes on and on.

But the cheekily innovative BalletBoyz brings a whole new generation of male dancers to the forefront of the dance world – all proving with each performance that real men, totally wear tights!
