The Mason Gross Extension Division has partnered with the acclaimed American Ballet Theatre to open a satellite branch of their Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School Children’s Division on the Douglass Campus in New Brunswick.

An open house for the program and for all Extension Division classes takes place Saturday, Sept. 8, 2012; free sample classes will be offered. Classes officially begin Saturday, Sept. 15, 2012, and run through Jan. 19, 2013. All fall-semester ABT/JKO students receive $100 off registration. Registration is open now.

Barbara Bashaw, graduate director of the EdM program in Dance Education at Mason Gross, says the JKO school not only provides rigorous training; it exposes young dancers “to a vast repertoire of classics, internationally acclaimed performers as role models and the opportunity to become a part of ballet culture, not just ballet classes.”
