Böys who Dance Mentorship

Abolishing Stereotypes


Through the Boys who Dance Mentorship program, mentees will be matched with one of CBJ’s male dancers and meet virtually once a week. Mentors will share what it was like for them growing up as a dancer and will help mentees develop their own strategies for overcoming the obstacles they face. Mentees will also get to hear, firsthand, about the triumphs and challenges of a career in dance and gain invaluable advice and insights as they work towards fulfilling their own dreams.

New registrations to the Böys who Dance Mentorship program have been paused for the time being. For more information, please contact Elise Tigges, elise@balletjorgen.ca.
