Programs For Schools
Numerous studies have shown that arts education is essential for developing fully formed, well-rounded students. Students who receive exposure to both the applied and the performing arts learn valuable skills in the areas of critical thinking, creative problem solving and social interaction. These skills are essential to insure future success.
American Ballet Theatre is committed to helping provide students with opportunities to experience and learn about ballet. Working with schools, ABT offers a variety of programs designed to broaden student horizons and give them creative learning opportunities they may not otherwise receive in their academic career.

These programs are supported, in part, by public funds from the
New York City Department of Cultural Affairs
