ABT Info & Dress Code


What is ABT Ballet? 

American Ballet Theatre (ABT) focuses on building a solid foundation in ballet technique with an emphasis on proper placement and safe progression of movement while remaining sensitive to the developmental needs of young dancers.

**IMPORTANT: Students do not automatically progress from one level to the next each academic year; remaining in one level for more than one year is common. Most levels take two years to complete! Placement and promotion decisions are based on the student’s age, stage of emotional and physical development, technical ability, potential, behavior in class as well as outside of class, faculty recommendation, and the director’s discretion.

Please keep in mind that the age range is given as a guideline. Students will be placed by Infinity Dance Centers artistic faculty in the appropriate level based on the guidelines mentioned above.

ABT levels are subdivided into Pre-Primary, Primary, and Levels 1A+.

Pre-Primary to Primary

ABT students ages three to seven are introduced to music and movement in our Primary Levels. The emphasis in these courses is on rhythm, dynamics, and placement, so that students graduate from Primary with an understanding of spatial awareness, correct alignment, teamwork, and focus. Each level is divided by age in order to accommodate the developmental needs of every student.

Levels 1A and up

Serious ballet students ages eight+ may audition for levels 1A and up to pursue pre-professional training. Infinity Dance Center faculty follow a specific graded curriculum designed to strengthen technique, stamina, and discipline though practical training and lessons in theory. Girls and boys may be separated in pre-pointe, pointe and boy’s class to address the specific techniques and physical strength of each individual dancer.

ABT Dress Code

There is a strict dress code for each level of the American Ballet Theatre dance classes. The physical transition of changing into dance clothes assists students in making the mental transition to focusing on the body that is essential to a successful learning environment. In order to accurately instruct students in executing proper technique legs, knees, feet, and torso must be visible. Correct color leotards may be purchased at Infinity Dance Center. 

Students who are not in dress code, including having hair properly done for class, may be asked to either fix their attire or sit out and observe class for the day. Girl's hair must be secured in a bun for ballet class, making sure it will not fall out while turning/jumping. The bun will keep hair out of eyes, off the neck and allow for proper spotting.

Small flowers, bows, and/or clips are acceptable.
