More Information

We welcome dancers of all levels, including beginners! In order to get the most from our program and our schedule, we recommend dancers should have a minimum of 2 years of studio experience.

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.

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.

The Independent Training program is open to dancers of all levels, to hone in on their training while maintaining a flexible work-life balance. The Professional Semester is audition-based for advanced dancers looking to launch their professional careers through a rigorous training structure.
