Princeton Ballet School to Take 2017 Summer Intensive Audition Tour to Orlando, NJ and More

Princeton Ballet School, the official school of American Repertory Ballet, announces its nationwide audition tour schedule for its highly celebrated Summer Intensive program held in Princeton, N.J., from June 26-July 28, 2017.

First held in 1981, Princeton Ballet School's Summer Intensive is one of the oldest in the United States. The Tour will be in Orlando, Florida on Saturday, January 14, 2017.

The Summer Intensive program is one of serious study in a warm and companionable atmosphere. The faculty provides caring and careful instruction conducive to technical and artistic progress. In seeking to maintain a feeling of community, Princeton Ballet School purposely limits the number of students in class.

Auditions are conducted by various Princeton Ballet School faculty members throughout the United States and Europe to select 100 students for the program. The audition will give students the opportunity to experience the approach to the classical ballet technique that Princeton Ballet School is famous for, as well as allowing the audition instructor to see who is capable of thriving in that environment. Students must be ages 13 and older. Classes are held at the Princeton Studio location with optional housing at Princeton University.

There is an audition fee of $30 (with a pre-registration possible at $25). For those unable to make the in-person audition, a video audition is possible. For complete information on that process, visit www.americanrepertoryballet.org/PBS/Summer-Intensive-2016-Audition-Information.
