Princeton Ballet Workshop (PBW) is the pre-professional program at American Repertory Ballet/Princeton Ballet School. There are two levels in the program: PBW Juniors and PBW Seniors. PBW Juniors comprises the youngest group of dancers aspiring to a professional career in dance, while PBW Seniors are dancers who have achieved the two most advanced levels of training at Princeton Ballet School. PBW Seniors also includes our highly respected Trainee program which encompasses both local and international, post-secondary school dancers.

PBW dancers typically perform in American Repertory Ballet’s NUTCRACKER and Princeton Ballet School’s annual end-of-year spring performances.

Information on how to participate and register will be sent via email. You can also get further clarification from Cheryl Whitney, PBW Administrator, at
