Boise Ballet Academy is the only ballet school in Idaho to offer the ABT Student Examinations. ABT Student Examinations benefit students by serving as a skill assessment to document students' progress, build their confidence, and improve their training.
An adjudicator from the ABT National Training Curriculum will observe the students as they perform a prepared examination class. The class is prepared and conducted by the students' ABT Certified Teacher. The students must have the examination class memorized. Each participating student receives an individual rubric outlining his/her proficiency both technically and artistically with comments from the Examiner.
Students who successfully pass the exam will also receive an official certificate listing the level of the examination class they took along with their level of distinction. The four levels of distinction are Pass, Pass with Merit, Pass with Honors, and Pass with High Honors.
