ABOUT THE AMERICAN BALLET THEATER CURRICULUM
Wasatch Ballet Conservatory is proud to include the AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE® National Training Curriculum, a breakthrough 9 level program that combines high quality artistic training with the basics of dancer health and child development. The ABT® 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.
Pre-Primary through Level 3 will be taught by ABT® Certified Teacher, Allison Wolsey, who has successfully completed the ABT® Teacher Training Intensive in Pre-Primary through Level 5 of the ABT® National Training Curriculum. Allison is also a Project Plié Partner Teacher.
WHY WE LOVE THIS CURRICULUM
We love that this program is built for the development and training of young students; it embraces sound ballet principles and incorporates elements of the French, Italian and Russian schools of training. The curriculum aims to train dance students to use their bodies correctly - to focus on kinetics and coordination, as well as anatomy and proper body alignment. Artistically, the ABT 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. By incorporating this curriculum into our ballet classes along with our faculties' years of teaching and performing experience, we know your dancer will achieve goals, see real results, and love learning at Wasatch Ballet!
