Performing Arts

The performing arts are integral to the lives of students at Princeton Day School.

From the first experience with music class in Pre-Kindergarten through exploration of music, theater and dance in Middle School and advanced performing arts courses in Upper School, our curriculum is designed to broaden and deepen student perception and understanding of themselves and others.

Our classroom environments, as well as time on the McAneny Theater stage, encourage students to discover their own potential as performers.
