Primary Ballet

Based on the AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE® National Training Curriculum, Primary Ballet is appropriate for children in kindergarten.


Ballet training for younger students is based on the English graded teaching syllabi of the Royal Academy of Dancing and the Cecchetti Society, along with the AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE® National Training Curriculum, a breakthrough 8 level program that combines high quality artistic training with the basics of dancer health and child development. The AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE® National Training Curriculum consists of a comprehensive set of age-appropriate, outcome-based guidelines to provide the highest quality ballet training to dance students of all ages and skill levels.

In the higher grades, students continue to study the above systems, but are also exposed to teachers of other methods, including Balanchine and Vaganova.
