Toledo Ballet is proud to be the only dance studio in the region to include the AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE® National Training Curriculum, a breakthrough 8-level program that combines 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. Toledo Ballet Artistic Director/School Director Lisa Mayer holds all 8 levels of ABT® National Training Curriculum certification: Primary through Level 7.
In Fall 2016, Toledo Ballet celebrates the ABT® certification of 3 additional faculty (in Primary – Level 3) by changing the names of its instructional levels to better reflect the ABT® National Training Curriculum protocols (class times, instructors and dress codes all remain the same). In keeping with ABT® values, students should expect to spend a minimum of 2 years in each level before advancing.
