Technique

The technique taught at the School of American Ballet is based on the classical traditions projected forward by George Balanchine*.

The basic syllabus is the same for beginning male and female students. As students progress technically, the contrast between male and female dancing is increasingly emphasized. The personal example of the teacher is of paramount importance.

*Balanchine is a trademark of The George Balanchine Trust.
