Balanced with creative movement and musical improvisation, children learn the basics of classical ballet technique and proper body alignment to build safe habits for future work.
Princeton Ballet School’s Children’s Division includes ages 3 through 7 (Hand in Hand to Primary C). PBS students may have the opportunity to perform alongside American Repertory Ballet professional artists in productions such as The Nutcracker.
Auditions are NOT required for the PBS Spring Performance. Dancers from Primary B and Primary C who are interested in participating would just need to register to perform.
Registration is open. Enrollment and class schedules are managed through our online Parent Portal. If you do not have an account set up, you can register for one here, Parent Portal Registration. A credit card is required during registration but will only be charged after enrolling in classes.
Hand in Hand
Hand in Hand is designed for 3 year old dancers, to participate with their parents or caregivers. The class focuses on discovering the world of rhythm and dance through gentle exercises while developing social, emotional and physical skills, and having fun!
Beginning Dance is for children ages 4 years old. This class explores rhythm and music through creative movement. Weekly themes and stories inspire individuality and expression, with an introduction to classical ballet technique.
Primary A begins the study of classical ballet technique, combining teacher-directed basics with imaginative dancing. Dancers work on basic body alignment from the very beginning, to build safe habits for future work.
Primary B continues the study of classical ballet begun in Primary A. The dancers start working on coordination skills to gain strength, balance and focus while instilling the joy of dance.
Primary C continues to work on coordination skills, focus and expand their Ballet technique vocabulary, while retaining the joy of movement.
