More About this Event Poster: New York Academy of Ballet

NYAB operates with the understanding that not all students have the ideal dancer’s body that will conform to rigid expectations of technique. The curriculum guidelines at NYAB allow for individualized nurturing of the developing bodies of all students in a safe and progressive way.

Our approach is to coach our students in discovering for themselves how their bodies relate to ballet technique, and then as they mature, to help them grow technically by “feeling the dance” from within. Our children’s classes go slowly and allow plenty of time for imagination and exploration, even as the children are mastering basic concepts.

For the older student, we continue to emphasize understanding technique so that safe work habits, personal responsibility, and concentration become second nature. The outcome of this approach is that our older students acquire the tools of mind and body they will need to not only become professional dancers or lifelong friends of the arts, but to foster self-esteem, self-discipline and fitness that provides a powerful edge in any future endeavor.
