Curriculum

"George Balanchine, inspired by the native athleticism and acrobatic inclination of young Americans, projected the traditions which had formed him towards a new discipline of increased speed and virtuosity. It is his development of contemporary classicism that has distinguished instruction at the School of American Ballet since its inception."
–Lincoln Kirstein
