American Ballet Theatre is recognized as one of the great dance companies in the world. Few ballet companies equal ABT for its combination of size, scope, and outreach. Recognized as a living national treasure since its founding in 1940, ABT is the only major cultural institution that annually tours the United States, performing for more than 450,000 people. The Company has also made more than 30 international tours to 50 countries as perhaps the most representative American ballet company and has been sponsored by the State Department of the United States on many of these engagements.
Arts Education Programming:
American Ballet Theatre proudly offers world-class artist-in-residency programs to schools in New York City and across the country. We are capable of serving grades K, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and programs are tailored to suit each school’s needs. All residencies are accompanied by complimentary tickets for students and chaperones to see an ABT or ABT Studio Company performance.
Supports For Students With Disabilities
We occasionally work with students from Learning Spring School, a school with children on the autism spectrum in grades K, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. They are supported by one of our Teaching Artists who has experience working with this type of student population.
