Summer Intensive Juniors Program develops well-rounded dancers

By Marisa Remez, Summer Marketing and Development Intern 

Over the past two years, I have spent quite a bit of time in the Wilcox dance studio on Princeton University’s campus. Whether I was spending hours choreographing, participating in dance workshops, or dancing during groggy Saturday morning rehearsals, I associate this studio with developing my skills alongside close friends who share my love of dance.

An Interview with Lindsay Jorgensen: from Understudying to Performing Aurora

Princeton Ballet School's annual spring production is always a delight. Every year, the school presents an adaptation of a full-length classical ballet, which showcases the talent of over 300 students, ranging from 5 years old through adult and from beginner through pre-professional levels. The featured roles are danced by members of ARB Workshop - a perfomance group comprised of the Professional Training Program and Trainee students. These roles are kept very close to the original choreography; they require precision and artistry.

Princeton and Boston

January 19/20:  Princeton and Boston.  Here we are in the thick of auditions.  Saturday in Princeton, we auditioned over 100 eager young dancers.  It was great to welcome some familiar faces from former summers, back now hoping to become Trainees to the company.  And it’s always super to see the next generation of our own students reaching the age at which they can audition for the advanced division of the Summer Intensive.

School's Back in Session - My Arts Education Goals

by Lisa Beth Vettoso

Well, the time has come; it’s September. And while some may try to deny it (“Summer isn’t officially over until September 22!”), all of us in the education world know it can only mean one thing—the official start of the school year. Facebook is flooded with back-to-school photos and there’s a crackle of excitement in the air (soon to be displaced by groans about waking up early and homework).
