Franklin School for the Performing Arts is proud to incorporate American Ballet Theatre’s National Training Curriculum which combines the principals of the French, Italian and Russian schools of ballet. The curriculum offers a high-quality level-based program with age appropriate technique backed by a comprehensive approach to child development and dancer health. At FSPA, we encourage and promote a positive atmosphere of learning while challenging and preparing each student for their goals in the arts.
The Pre-Professional Program features more advanced ballet technique and is offered by teacher evaluations and audition only. This program consists of our most challenging and demanding schedules and provides additional performance opportunities for our dancers, along with private coaching, and extra classes if desired.
