Studio Experience

Working with world-renowned faculty in one of our two state-of-the-art studios – located in Boston’s South End and Newton, Massachusetts – students have the opportunity to grow tremendously as both dancers and artists. While Summer Dance Program maintains a strong focus on classical ballet technique, such that it represents over half of a student’s training hours, the curriculum also explores a broader spectrum of dance styles. As the dance industry continues to develop, this expanded dance vocabulary becomes increasingly important.

Residential Experience

Outside of the studios, residential students live at Boston University – in Boston’s Kenmore and Fenway neighborhoods – where we are thrilled to offer a true “Boston” experience. With the Charles River and Fenway Park just steps away, and with easy access to sites like Faneuil Hall Marketplace and Boston Common, this unique, urban environment provides the perfect backdrop for social enrichment. Learn more about what students can expect, including dining, residential staff, weekend activities, and more!
