The mission of 10 Hairy Legs is to advance the understanding of the male role in dance through the creation, acquisition and performance of exceptional work.


Our Education Programs advance the understanding of dance as an art form. As an all-male company, we provide a unique perspective that encourages meaningful dialogues about the male role in dance, gender roles in today's society, and stereotypes - in a stimulating, positive and encouraging learning environment.

Designed to enhance physical, social, and emotional development, we serve a diverse range of participants from enthusiast to novice beginner to the pre-professional, experienced dancer. Our Teaching Artists engage participants' creativity and address important life skills such as discipline, collaboration, and critical thinking. Our active dance programs incorporate 10 Hairy Legs' repertory of Randy James and our Artistic Collaborators for lessons in technique, performance skills, and creative process. Participants who attend Public Schools leave our programs having accomplished personal and group learning objectives related to the NJCCC & NDEO Standards.

Our In-School performances provide an exceptional dance experience for one class or your entire school population performed by our professional artists.

If you are interested in bringing 10 Hairy Legs to your location, please review our many program offerings. For more information, or to book 10 Hairy Legs in your school, studio or theater, please contact Elizabeth Shaff Sobo, Executive Director.
