American Liberty Ballet Academy dancers have the opportunity to take a variety of classes, taught by experienced teachers who have a strong understanding of childhood development. 

This program has levels for the beginning dancer to the pre-professional student. A combination of personalized attention and small classes facilitates correct technique, and creates a supportive educational environment for our students. All students will be encouraged to perform alongside our professional company, American Liberty Ballet, in both our annual production of "The Nutcracker" as well as a spring production. Other productions and performance opportunities frequently pop up over the year!

American Liberty Ballet is proud to include the AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE® National Training Curriculum, a breakthrough 9 level program that combines high quality artistic training with the basics of dancer health and child development. The ABT® National Training Curriculum consists of a comprehensive set of age-appropriate, outcome-based guidelines to provide the highest quality ballet training to dance students of all ages and skill levels. Pre-Primary through Level 5 will be taught by ABT® Certified Teacher Valerie Mae Browne, who has successfully completed the ABT® Teacher Training Intensive in Pre-Primary through Level 5 of the ABT® National Training Curriculum.
