Give a Gift of Love in Motion – Gift Certificate for Princeton Ballet School Classes

Princeton
Ballet School, the official school of American Repertory Ballet, now has gift
certificates available to make it easy to give the gift of dance to a
friend or loved one for the holidays…or anytime. The school offers a variety of
ballet programs and other dance classes for both beginner-level and experienced
dancers ages three through adult.

As a former
principal dancer with Pennsylvania Ballet and San Francisco Ballet, and
currently the executive director of Princeton Ballet School and American
Repertory Ballet, Julie Diana Hench knows how well dancing can position
individuals for success throughout their lives. “Dance has many proven benefits
beyond the studio,” says Ms. Hench. “It teaches you how to be resilient, how to
work hard, problem solve, and express yourself creatively. Giving the gift of
dance can have a lasting positive impact on an individual’s life.”

Princeton
Ballet School gift certificates can be applied to Hand-in-Hand classes, Open
Enrollment classes, New Student registration, Current Student tuition and
Summer classes. READ MORE

But we should add an Indigenous Peoples’ Day and encourage schools to take it seriously, as Canada has done. Many students graduate high school thinking that perhaps they shouldn’t celebrate Columbus without knowing exactly why, and still knowing next to nothing about indigenous peoples’ history. Helping them learn that history might yield better results than abolishing a holiday,” Dr. Townsend said. READ MORE
