On Pointe

ARB's Free Community Enrichment Series at the Princeton Ballet School

American Repertory Ballet (ARB) is reinventing the community’s inside access to the dance world through a FREE enrichment series entitled On Pointe. Held at Princeton Ballet School’s studios in Princeton, and other locations, ARB brings guest speakers, lecture demonstrations, company performance previews, and panel discussions to seasoned dance enthusiasts and new students alike.

ARB launched On Pointe in October 2010 as part of the organization’s larger strategy to make ballet more accessible to the community. On Pointe allows the community to interact with the acclaimed artists and collaborators involved with ARB in an intimate setting. Through On Pointe, company blogs, online resources, and other Access & Enrichment initiatives, ARB aims to build dance enthusiasts and nurture appreciation for the art form as a whole.

2019-2020 On Pointe series is generously sponsored by Anthony and Marlene M. Volpe
