American Repertory Ballet to Host 'Dancing Your Way into College' & Waiting in the Wings DANCE POWER in April
In April 2014, American Repertory Ballet's Access & Enrichment department will present two events - one in each of the organization's home communities of New Brunswick and Princeton. Both of these events are free and open to the public. On Friday, April 4, 2014 at 5:15pm, ARB will host "Dancing Your Way into College," an On Pointe enrichment series event, at Princeton Ballet School. On Monday, April 7, 2014, American Repertory Ballet's acclaimed DANCE POWER educational residency in the New Brunswick Public School District will culminate with its Waiting in the Wings performance. This year, Waiting in the Wings will take place at State Theatre in New Brunswick.
ARB launched the On Pointe series in 2010 to help make ballet more accessible to the community. ARB has hosted a "Dancing Your Way into College" On Pointe in the past, featuring representatives from different universities and programs. At this year's "Dancing Your Way into College" event, representatives from ARB and from Princeton University's admissions and financial aid departments will advise high school dancers and their families on their college options and how to best navigate the admissions process. The event will be moderated by ARB's Acting Executive Director and Director of Educational Programming, Lisa Beth Vettoso. Robin Moscato, Director of Financial Aid at Princeton University, Jordan Moses, Assistant Director of Admissions at Princeton University, and company dancers from American Repertory Ballet will serve as panelists. This event will cater to students both interested in pursuing a degree in dance or a degree in another subject area while continuing to dance extracurricularly. "Dancing Your Way into College" is recommended for high school students and their parents or guardians.
