ARB's Access and Enrichment Mission...
...is to expose New Jersey communities to the art form of dance, as active participants and informed observers, and to develop lifelong dance enthusiasts.
Since establishing DANCE POWER, its first Access & Enrichment program in 1985, ARB has fulfilled this mission by:
Reaching over 20,000 students in the New Brunswick public school system through the DANCE POWER program.
Offering DANCE POWER students with a true passion for and interest in dance an opportunity to attend the Princeton Ballet School on full scholarship from grade 4 through high school.
Each year, exposing approximately 10,000 children and families of varying ethnic, socio-economic backgrounds, and ages to dance through curriculum-based residencies, School Time Matinees, assemblies, On Pointe, and community events.
