ABT's National Training Curriculum

AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE ANNOUNCES NATIONAL TRAINING CURRICULUM
 
ABT’s National Training Curriculum is a program for the development and training of young students that embraces sound ballet principles and incorporates elements of the French, Italian and Russian schools of training. Under the direction of ABT Artistic Director Kevin McKenzie, ABT’s National Training Curriculum was designed and written by Franco De Vita and Raymond Lukens in collaboration with ABT’s Artistic Advisors and the Medical Advisory Board. ABT’s National Training Curriculum aims to assist beginning through advanced teachers in training dance students to use their bodies correctly, focusing on kinetics and coordination, as well as anatomy and proper body alignment. Artistically, the National Training Curriculum strives to provide dance students with a rich knowledge of classical ballet technique and the ability to adapt to all styles and techniques of dance.

ABT Certified Teachers have completed intensive training in the ABT National Training Curriculum and successfully passed comprehensive examination(s). For more detailed information on becoming an ABT Certified Teacher, click here.
