Boys aged between eight and 18 will be able to sample various styles of dance, including ballet and street dance.

Kenny Burke, head of the Dance School of Scotland, said: “Boys Only is reaching out to the community, giving young men the opportunity to demonstrate their potential and to dance with and learn from their male peers and leading dance artists.”
