Training Curriculum

Ballet Kalamazoo’s training is unique in that it does not follow one particular style. Our classical ballet syllabus includes certain elements from each training method determined to give the very best experience of classical ballet and creating well-rounded dancers.

In the Ballet Kalamazoo Curriculum, you will see the results of the training our instructors received at Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet of their proven Teaching Syllabus©, the Pacific Northwest Ballet's Teacher Training Intensive in Seattle, The AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE® (ABT) National Training Curriculum, as well as the innovative Progressing Ballet Technique Training.

Our team is passionate about continuing education which means each year our instructors attend a teacher training to keep their skills honed and Ballet Kalamazoo's curriculum up-to-date with current dance trends.

Ballet Kalamazoo hosts master classes each year in collaboration with visiting professional dance companies. This is an incredible opportunity to elevate our dancers’ ballet training experience right here in Kalamazoo. Through exposure to the teaching styles of these fine ballet companies, our dancers diversify their skill sets to become even stronger dancers.
