Fun and educational dance programs await students ages 3 through adult at Princeton Dance & Theater Studio in Princeton’s Forrestal Village. Early birds are awarded with discounted prices when they register before the March 1 deadline.

For the youngest dancers, PDT offers Dance With Me, which will run every Thursday in August. Amazingly priced at just $25 for four 30-minute sessions, these classes are the perfect introduction to dance. For young dancers who are ready to dance alone, PDT offers the morning dance programs, Little Dancing Stars (ages 3-5) and Dancing Stars (ages 6-8), which combine dance, crafts, and fun!

More experienced elementary-age dancers will love PDT’s Young Dancer Summer Intensive (ages 8-10). This full-day program, offered for 1 to 4 weeks during the month of July, includes a daily ballet technique class along with a variety of other classes including choreography, modern, jazz, hip hop, and flamenco! Additionally, evening ballet classes are offered in August for this age group.

Serious ballet dancers from around the country travel to PDT for its renowned Summer Intensive (ages 11-20). The Intensive uses the American Ballet Theater National Training Curriculum and brings in famous names from the ballet world to teach the students. The five-week program, which runs from June 27 to July 29 requires an audition, which can be done via video or by arranging an audition class. Out of town students will stay at the beautiful Lawrenceville School.

Additionally, serious ballet dancers can take a week-long Repertoire Intensive during the second week of August taught by PDT Director Risa Kaplowitz. Each day will begin with a technique class and end with learning classical variations.

Summer is also a great opportunity for teens interested in musical theater to hone their skills by getting a great basic knowledge of ballet. PDT’s popular Adult/Teen Ballet will run Tuesday and Thursday evening from June 29 through August 4. Adults who are looking to finally learn ballet, revive long lost ballet skills, or get into the best shape of their lives will also enjoy these classes.

Want to learn or continue to tap? We offer three levels for all ages in our Kick’n & Click’n Tap Series taught by Tap Dance Hall of Famer Karen Calloway Williams. Beginner, intermediate, and adult/teen beginner classes will be offered every Thursday evening in July.
