Students who are residents of the USA, may accept employment while attending the program. We would recommend only part-time employment, as this program may take 20 or more hours of your week. International students on the M-1 visa are not permitted by law to gain legal employment. Please be sure you are financially able to support yourself while studying at BDC.

No. You must acquire the M1 student visa through Broadway Dance Center. This school is authorized under Federal law to enroll nonimmigrant alien students.

Yes, you can extend. There is a $25 administrative fee for USA residents, and a $200 administrative fee for international students to extend your program. The program administrator can provide you with further details on extensions.

At this time we are not offering scholarships.
