Elementary Division requires a placement class. For further accommodation, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for placement prior to registering.
Princeton Ballet School’s Elementary Division includes ages 8 through 12 (Level 1 through Level 3). 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 who are interested in participating would just need to register to perform.
Level 1 – Elementary
Level 1 Ballet begins a more sophisticated and in-depth study of the ballet technique, while retaining the joy of movement. Students enrolled in 3 classes per week are automatically accepted into the Nutcracker and Spring Performance.
Level 2 – Elementary
Level 2 Ballet marks the beginning of a more rigorous approach to classical technique. Here, we polish and lay the foundation for future development. Students enrolled in 3 classes per week are automatically accepted into the Nutcracker and Spring Performance.
Level 3 – Elementary
Level 3 Ballet is a very challenging level. The technique focuses on the strength needed to get students ready for pointe work in Level 4. This Level brings the first “End of Year Evaluation” and possible invitation to the Pre-Professional Division, which will require participation in all offered ballet classes.
