Affiliated since its inception with the Princeton Ballet School, American Repertory Ballet has studios in Cranbury, New Brunswick, and Princeton. The ballet holds many performances each year at several different venues, including an annual, multiple venue Nutcracker, and has commissioned works from emerging choreographers like Amy Seiwert and Melissa Barak.
