Teacher Training Intensives

We at American Ballet Theatre believe that the key to raising the quality of ballet training nationwide is to provide teachers with the information needed to fully understand the best practices in pedagogy, child development, dance psychology, and anatomy. That is why ABT created the Teacher Training Intensives, in which ballet teachers receive a holistic education on the National Training Curriculum and the best practices in how to teach ballet.

The trainings are divided into three sessions: Session 1 is for NTC certification in Pre-Primary through Level 3, Session 2 is for NTC certification in Levels 4 and 5, and Session 3 is for NTC certification in Levels 6, 7, and Partnering. ABT offers a variety of national and international Teacher Training Intensives. See below for ABT’s opportunities for dance educators.
