We have a long history and a strong track record of providing high-quality dance instruction to adult students. Many of our adult students have told us that other ballet schools seem to only offer a couple of classes for adults as an after-thought, with teachers who are not really interested in training adults. But Princeton Ballet School has over 50 classes weekly specifically for adult students. These classes are led by knowledgeable, charismatic and caring teachers who are here to help you explore new types of dance safely, improve your technique, and have a great time, too.
Who else will you find in your class? People of all ages from 13 to 70 plus. Most of our dancers are adults from all walks of life, who enjoy dance class as their life sport. Some are retired dancers or local dance teachers from other studios and colleges, who take class to keep up their skills and strength. We also have many dancers who are students at Rider University, as we provide the studio classes for the degree in Fine Arts with a dance specialization offered by Rider. We extend a warm welcome to all, and have many different levels of class to accommodate dancers of all skill levels.
Ballet and modern dance classes are accompanied by one of our staff of a dozen highly-skilled accompanists.
You can participate in these classes in three different ways, depending on the amount of background you have:
- BEGINNERS for all dance forms follow a special calendar and payment schedule.
