INTRODUCING AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH CANTERBURY BALLET

Empire Dance company is proud and excited to be working with Canterbury Ballet to offer the American Ballet Theatre National Training Curriculum, an eight-level program that combines high-quality artistic training with the basics of dancer health and child development for students of all ages and skill levels.

ABT’s National Training Curriculum is a program for the development and training of young students that embraces sound ballet principles and incorporates elements of the French, Italian and Russian schools of training. Under the direction of ABT Artistic Director Kevin McKenzie, the Curriculum aims to assist beginning through advanced teachers in training dance students to use their bodies correctly, focusing on kinetics and coordination, as well as anatomy and proper body alignment. The National Training Curriculum strives to provide dance students with a rich knowledge of classical ballet technique and the ability to adapt to all styles and techniques of dance.

“After nearly ten years, American Ballet Theatre's Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School and our related Summer Intensive program has seen the impact that American Ballet Theatre's National Training Curriculum has meant to dance teachers and ballet students across the country and internationally,” says Cynthia Harvey, Artistic Director of ABT’s Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School. “We are pleased that teachers and students are implementing the guidelines recommended by the Curriculum and working in a way that will lead them towards a long and healthy career. The Curriculum is fluid and will expand as we continue to investigate the way that dance and sports science are developing and impacting the way we can train dancers to reach their optimum physical and artistic potential.”

Ready Set Dance 2-5 Y Trial
READY SET DANCE is the perfect way to start developing the co-ordination skills that are the basics of dance classes.
The JAZZ component of the class teaches preschoolers important developmental milestones like skipping, cross co-ordination and sequencing.
There is no denying that preschoolers these days are cool. They love to bust out HIP HOP moves. We have developed our very own hip hop songs like the ‘Ice Cream Freeze’ and ‘Hip Hop Italiano’ that our dancers absolutely love learning.
Our MUSIC section has a strong emphasis on counting music, understanding tempo and exploring rhythm. We love to use musical instruments and parachutes to have fun learning music as a team.
Each lesson involves SINGING time on the microphone. Our little divas and rock stars just love to take their turn on their microphone and sing with their puppets.
It’s very rewarding to see some of our shy students gradually gain confidence and sing individually on the microphone and introduce themselves to the class.
We know that the secret to learning TAP is to start early – It’s just like learning a language. That’s why it’s an important ingredient in our class. Our songs like the ‘Gumboot Splash’, ‘Jungle Bug Squish’ and the ‘Penguin Parade’ are fun exercises that teach us how to use our heels, toes and to learn how to shuffle. All these ingredients together create a super hour of fun!
