Princeton Dance and Theater Offers Free Trial Classes

BACK IN THE STUDIO: Even the youngest students at Princeton Dance and Theater Studio (PDT)  wear masks for ballet class. Free trial classes will be offered at PDT on August 8 and 22 and September 12.

On August 8 and 22 and September 12, Princeton Dance and Theater Studio (PDT) will host no more than 10 students to try beginning ballet. Children ages 7 and up may also try hip hop, tap, modern dance, and jazz.

“For nearly 18 years, PDT has provided the region with exceptional dance training and we are making sure that we continue to do so in a safe manner,” said Director Risa Kaplowitz. The school also gives options to take classes live online. Enrollment is much more limited this year, so it is important to register earlier than in past years.”

On August 8, pre-primary students (ages 3.5-5) can take class from 11:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.  Primary students (ages 5-7) are invited from 12:30-1 p.m. On August 22, the class is Tap 1 (ages 7+) from 10-10:30 a.m.; Hip Hop 1 (ages 7+) 11-11:30 a.m.; and Modern (ages 7+) 12-12:30 p.m.

On September 12, Pre-Primary students (ages 3.5-5) can take class from 9:30-10 a.m.; while Primary students (ages 5-7) can participate from 10:30 -11 a.m.

Pre-registration is required and the sign-up link can be found at princetondance.com.

Princeton Dance and Theater Studio in Forrestal Center was founded in 2003 to provide dance education for all ages in a supportive environment. The school’s premise is that great dance training fosters physical and mental acuity, self-awareness, intrinsic motivation, determination, grace, and a lifelong appreciation for the arts. PDT includes the American Ballet Theatre (ABT) National Training Curriculum, an eight-level program that combines high quality artistic training with the basics of dancer health and child development. The ABT National Training Curriculum consists of a comprehensive set of age-appropriate, outcome-based guidelines to provide the highest quality ballet training to dance students of all ages and skill levels.
