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.
