Performance Opportunities

Princeton Ballet School offers many performance opportunities to its students


In celebration of Princeton Ballet School’s 65th Anniversary, our school spring performance on May 16, 2020, will be traveling through history to honor our founder, Audrée Estey. The performance will feature new choreography plus excerpts of ballets from Princeton Ballet School’s full-length original productions.

1955-Cinderella, 1956-Nutcracker, 1957-Sleeping Beauty, 1960-Coppelia

For those of you who have reserved your spot in this production, now is the time to select your role and give our Wardrobe Supervisor the measurements needed to order your costume!

And, for those of you who haven’t signed up yet – there’s still time. Follow the directions below!

  1. Use the Role Selection Chart below to determine the role and rehearsal studio most appropriate for your dancer.
    • Most families will use the level appropriate “home” studio to determine their young dancer’s role.  You may certainly select a different location if that would work better for you. 



2. Measure your dancer BEFORE you open the Online Registration Link.  Use the Costume Measurement Diagram to the left as a guide for accurate measurement

  • A = Girth
  • B = Chest
  • C = Waist
  • D = Hips
  • E = Inseam

We have completed auditions for Nutcracker 2019. Please check back next year for Nutcracker 2020 audition information.

As the official school of the American Repertory Ballet, students have the opportunity to audition to perform with the company in its annual production of Nutcracker in theaters throughout New Jersey. There are also frequent occasions for students to appear with the professional company in other ballets. At the end of the school year, students may participate in a school production of a classical ballet. Rehearsals are held outside the regular class, allowing students to continue learning throughout the year, and also to have a better understanding of the process of putting together a ballet production.
