In time for Cranbury Day and the start of classes, will reopen after undergoing renovations, including updating the building’s façade, according to the school.
The interior of the studio has not changed, however the front has been remodeled with input from the Historic Preservation Commission, the school said in a news release. Affiliated with American Repertory Ballet, the dance school has two studios at the Cranbury location.
“Because our property is located in the Historic District of Cranbury Township, we worked closely with the Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) in the design process to be sure the style, materials and finishing touches protected and enhanced the historic qualities of the town,” American Repertory Ballet Managing Director Christine Chen said in the release.
American Repertory Ballet and Princeton Ballet School will once again perform at Cranbury Day, held this year on Sept. 8, and throughout the day several performances will be held at the renovated studio.
“I'm very excited for everyone to see our new look when we re-open in September for classes,” Chen said.
At 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. advanced students in the American Repertory Ballet Workshop will perform new and classical choreography, including pieces from Swan Lake, Once Upon a Summer’s Day (A Gardener’s Fantasy) and Drive. The junior students from the workshop will also perform.
Following the 2 p.m. performance, a trial class will be offered, and a table will be set up outside the studio for more information.
