About the Studio

Princeton Dance and Theater Studio, Inc. was founded in 2003 by Susan Jaffe (former principal dancer at American Ballet Theater) and Risa Kaplowitz (former principal dancer with Dayton Ballet). Its mission is to provide students with the highest quality training available enabling them to grow as performing artists and dance enthusiasts.

While PDT anticipates many of its students to grow into professional performers, its main goal is to empower all students with confidence, discipline, and creativity. These attributes, along with an appreciation for the performing arts, are often the result of authentic dance training. The skills gained by exceptional dance training last a lifetime.
