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
New York City Department of Cultural Affairs
