Broadway World has praised ARB’s dancing and mixed-bill programming at Hamilton Stage: “Performed at New Jersey's own Hamilton Stage - a small but sophisticated theatrical space- [American Repertory Ballet’s] offerings are neatly fitted...Small format, but broad emotional resonance. For the most part, these are dances that...burst into fantastic heat and light.”...“ARB's fresh, wondering, fantasy-filled approach to motion and color requires plenty of aesthetic intelligence.”

Signature Duets features a world premiere by renowned choreographer Kirk Peterson, former dancer with American Ballet Theatre, Peterson's emotionally resonant Tears of the Moon, ARB Resident Choreographer Mary Barton's dynamic and inventive Shades of Time, and excerpts from ARB Artistic Director Douglas Martin's signature story ballets Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night's Dream.

LATIN SOCIAL DANCE CLASS
WHEN & WHERE: The class will be after the performance on Friday, April 24 at 10:30 PM at Patria Latin Bistro in Rahway. On Saturday, April 25, the class will begin at 6:30pm, before ARB’s 8:00pm performance, in the Fazzioli Room at Hamilton Stage
