About Plab

Performance Lab provides an opportunity for students working in dance, writing, theater, or visual art to showcase their new interdisciplinary work developed through discussion with other artists and mentorship from dance faculty. Through one-on-one meetings over the past several months, students have looked at the ways that structure, intent, and theatrical elements can support their artistic creation. The independent student projects showcased at this event are the product of this mentored creative process.

Students were invited to submit recent new work for consideration by Dance Program faculty in the fall. Faculty member Aynsley Vandenbroucke has been mentoring the students in development of their pieces, which will be performed by other Princeton students.

The Program in Dance, led by award-winning choreographer Susan Marshall, offers Princeton undergraduates a wide range of opportunities in dance. Students can enroll in a single course, pursue a certificate in dance (similar to a minor), or participate in co-curricular classes. Studio-based courses taught by dance professionals range from include modern, contemporary, ballet, urban and African dance, and include the creation of original work, study of master repertory, and rigorous technical training. Frequent performance opportunities are provided including the annual Princeton Dance Festival, a senior thesis collaborative concert, and informal showings.
