abtABT BALLET CONSERVATORY

RC Dance Center incorporates the American Ballet Theatre® National Training Curriculum in their teaching; a breakthrough 8-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 training to dance students of all ages and skill levels. Primary through Level 7 is taught by ABT Affiliate Teacher, Jennifer Thompson-Bosco, who has successfully completed the ABT Teacher Training Intensive in Primary through Level 7 and Partnering. The ballet faculty at RC Dance Center includes ABT Certified Teachers Jennifer Thompson-Bosco, Jose Carayol and Faye Bosco.

ABT Training Curriculum

American Ballet Theatre’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.

"As a national ballet company, ABT understands that it has a responsibility to take a leadership role in dance training and dance education in the United States," said ABT Executive Director, Rachel Moore.

"To this end, we have developed a new ballet curriculum and a teacher training program that is both artistically sound and medically appropriate. Our goal is to provide teachers with the tools and information they need to provide the highest quality training to dance students of all ages and skill levels."

The National Training Curriculum fulfills ABT’s mission as America’s National Ballet Company in bringing dance to the widest possible audience. While several training methods are soundly in place within the United States, ABT’s National Training Curriculum can be used to enhance an existing syllabus and to assist teachers in working appropriately with young dancers.
