Performance Opportunities

Perform in the Princeton Dance Festival on the beautiful Berlind Theatre stage on November 20-22, 2020!

If you want to perform in the Princeton Dance Festival (PDF) next fall, plan to enroll in one of the dance program’s fall 2020 performance/choreography workshop courses DAN 319/320/419/420 and email Dance Program Associate Cindy Rosenfeld (cr17@) your full name, class year and Princeton ID number.

You will then be given permission to enroll in BOTH an A-section (Choreography) AND a B-section (Technique/Repertory) according to your class year.


Rising seniors (2021), will be given permission to enroll in DAN 420 A and DAN 420 B.

Rising juniors (2022), will be given permission to enroll in DAN 419 A and DAN 419 B.

Rising sophomores (2023), who performed in PDF last year will be given permission to enroll in DAN 320 A and DAN 320 B; and rising sophomores who did not perform in PDF will be given permission to enroll in DAN 319 A (U02) and 319 B.

Regarding A-section: If you have a time conflict or another unique situation, please let Tina Fehlandt (fehlandt@) or Rebecca Lazier (rlazier@) know and we can discuss an alternative.

Regarding B-section: B-section placement will likely change after the mandatory placement class on Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2020. You will be able to make the switch in TigerHub during add/drop in the fall.

For now, however, we ask you to please register in the appropriate B-section according to your class year.


Please save the date to attend the mandatory placement class for all students of all class years on Tuesday, September 1 from 4 – 7 p.m. in the Hearst Dance Theater at the Lewis Arts complex.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to dance faculty Tina Fehlandt or Rebecca Lazier, or Program Associate Cindy Rosenfeld with any questions.


Several Princeton Dance Festival performances will be presented between November 20, 21 and 22, 2020, with exact performance times TBA. Student preparations require four additional rehearsals, several costume fittings, as well as a final technical and dress rehearsal the week of the performance.

Additionally, students can participate in PDF by auditioning in the fall with a professional guest choreographer. More information on those opportunities will be announced soon.
