SUMMER AT THE BARRE: Princeton Ballet School, the official school of American Repertory Ballet, is offering Summer Intensive Junior and Intermediate programs in Princeton and Cranbury. All classes begin June 24. Registration is now open.

Princeton Ballet School begins its Summer Intensive Program this summer with a variety of courses at different levels. Classes begin June 24.

The program for Juniors will focus on technical progress, strength building, and flexibility as well as increasing coordination for dance students ages 9 through 11. Class time will also include dance history, anatomy, performance skills, arts and crafts, and dance composition. Junior classes will be held on the campus of Princeton University and run Monday through Friday for five weeks. Students can register for one week or anywhere up to five weeks.

The Summer Dance Program for Intermediates offers personalized training for young dancers ages 11 and up. The program includes classes in character, Pilates, choreography, hip hop, and modern dance along with a morning of two ballet classes. New for this year — students in the Intermediate program may be eligible to take part in the performance at McCarter Theatre on July 26. Princeton Ballet School Director Aydmara Cabrera will choreograph a new piece specifically for this group of young dancers. Intermediate classes will be held at Princeton Ballet School’s Cranbury Studio, 29 North Main Street, Cranbury. The program runs Monday through Friday for six weeks. Students can register for one week or anywhere up to six weeks.

In addition to the Summer Intensive programs, Princeton Ballet School is also offering summer courses for children ages 3 through 12 at its Princeton and Cranbury studios. The age-appropriate courses provide an atmosphere and training that nurture self-discipline, physical fitness, and a greater appreciation of movement and music. Classes are one day per week for five weeks.
