Signature and Special Events

Annual Gala

Since the organization’s first gala in 1985, this signature fundraising event continues to celebrate and showcase the three branches of the organization: New Jersey’s preeminent professional ballet company; its official school, Princeton Ballet School, one of the largest non-profit dance schools in the country; and ARB’s Access & Enrichment programming, with performances by scholarship recipients from the organization’s signature DANCE POWER residency in the New Brunswick school district. Over the past 30 years, gala leaders and volunteers have included board members, Princeton Ballet School parents, and friends of the organization. Learn more about our upcoming gala here.
