“One of our missions at Princeton Youth Ballet is to encourage a love and appreciation for classical ballet through inspired storytelling, magical productions, and uncompromising artistry,” says PYB Artistic Director, Risa Kaplowitz. “Our productions give talented young dancers the chance to perform in professional-quality performances.”

This season, dancers will take the stage alongside PYB alumna Jillian Davis, now a notable member of the prominent contemporary ballet company Complexions, who will perform the leading role she originated in The Snow Queen. Dancers will also participate in presenting two sensory-friendly performances for individuals with sensory sensitivities on December 9th and May 5th. The season ahead promises inspiring experiences for dancers and audiences alike!
