The American Ballet Theatre curriculum, created in collaboration with dancers, physical therapists, and educators, is the only ballet curriculum recognized by the US Department of Education! Essence Prep is the only K-8 school in San Antonio offering the American Ballet Theatre curriculum as part of their core classes.
The Body: Taking ballet courses at a young age increases physical strength as scholars will learn and practice proper posture and build muscle and flexibility.
The Mind: And while there are many physical benefits of dance, dancing can also have a positive impact on mental health. Dance is an amazing activity for developing confidence as well as cognitive and communication skills.
