American Preparatory Ballet Training © is a unique, world-class certification program designed to teach preparatory dance to children ages 16 months to 7 years old. APBT © participants will learn how to teach the curriculum of Boston Ballet School’s Children’s Program. Our Children’s Program, developed by LUCIANO AIMAR, Head of BBS Children’s Program, is based upon the culmination of dance therapy studies, early childhood education theories, and ballet as a technique.

While teaching students the fundamentals of creative movement such as utilizing our bodies in space and how music connects to cognitive growth, our students are also encouraged to explore their imagination. Students progress through the Children’s Program before entering into our Classical Ballet Program (ages 8-18) This curriculum has been utilized in other institutions such as School of American Ballet (LITTLE DANCER CLASSES) and The Rock School (PRE-BALLET DIVISION). 

APBT © certification completion will equip teachers with the following tools/materials:

Flexibility to attend this certification program in-person, hybrid, or fully remote.
