Summer Dance Program

Held at the Boston Ballet headquarters in the South End of Boston and at our state-of-the-art Newton Studio, the Summer Dance Program (SDP) offers an unparalleled experience for serious-minded ballet students. 


Summer Dance Program

SDP is open to students who will be between the ages of 12 and 18 when the program begins. The only exception is for students from outside the United States and Canada, who must be at least age 14 when the program begins.

SDP Auditions

Acceptance to SDP is by Audition only. This year auditions for Boston Ballet School’s Summer Dance Program will be held in 24 cities throughout the United States.


We celebrate diversity while fostering a team spirit.
