American Repertory Ballet
American Repertory Ballet’s (ARB) mission is to bring the joy, beauty, artistry and discipline of classical and contemporary dance to New Jersey and nationwide audiences and to dance students through artistic and educational programs. The organization is led by Executive Director Vanessa Logan, who brings 19 years of experience in arts administration. Before joining ARB, she was Chief of Staff at Boston Ballet, where she supported operations, budgeting, staff management, and event planning.
The company is a classical and contemporary ballet company committed to presenting ballets from the 19th and 20th centuries alongside new and existing works by choreographers from today. The performing company, founded in 1963, is currently under the artistic leadership of Douglas Martin, former principal dancer with the Joffrey Ballet. ARB has been designated a “Major Arts Institution” by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts consistently for the past two decades, and has repeatedly been awarded a Citation of Excellence by the Council. ARB was voted the Jersey Arts People’s Choice for “Favorite Dance Company” in 2008, 2011, 2012, and 2015.
Princeton Ballet School has gained a national reputation for its excellent dance training since its founding in 1954 by Audrée Estey. Currently, more than 1,200 students, starting at age three, as well as a large open enrollment division for adults, take classes on a daily basis. Students from the school have gone to dance in professional ballet and contemporary dance companies in the United States and abroad.
