    Classes are for students at levels Basic through Advanced in a multitude of styles.

  • Develop relationships with your teachers through ongoing faculty mentoring—one-on-one sessions providing personal evaluations and coaching.
  • Bimonthly Performance Project with free rehearsal space offered to those performing. 
  • Positive and nurturing full-time staff on hand to help guide your studies.
  • 7 state-of-the-art studios in the heart of the Broadway Theater District.
  • Faculty of over 90 world-renowned teachers and working choreographers offering cutting-edge to classical styles of instruction and choreography.

As this is a full-time program, we advise against enrolling concurrently with full-time university studies or trying to work full-time while participating in the course. Working or attending school part-time is fine.

While BDCTP is open to dancers of different backgrounds and varying levels, we also offer the Professional Semester for advanced and pre-professional level dancers. The primary difference between the two programs is level. If you are unsure which program to choose, we encourage you to apply to the Professional Semester. If we feel that your level is not quite suited to the advanced course, we will—at no extra charge—roll your application over to BDCTP for consideration. There is no need to submit two separate applications.

FAQs

Broadway Dance Center has provided the finest in dance instruction since 1984, and our faculty is world-renowned. The BDC Training Program has been carefully designed to facilitate your training in an intensive course of study. While you focus on your development, we work with you to help you achieve your goals. BDCTP features the largest variety and choice of classes of any studio in NYC, with an unparalleled teaching staff of professionals. We will consider applications from dancers at varying levels. Our program is constructed in a non-competitive atmosphere, and the sense of community among our students is strong.
Dancers with professional training will find many options to support their progress. We accept applications from students and teachers at varying levels. We look for applicants with a strong desire to train intensively and to work hard to achieve their goals. While no previous formal training is specifically required, we have found that absolute beginners have difficulty building a curriculum at our studios, and would suggest gaining a modicum of experience before applying. We do honor and cultivate all styles of dance, so if your training is primarily in street styles, do not be discouraged from applying.
Yes, students may accept employment while attending the program. We find that trying to do the program while holding a full-time job, however, is prohibitive. We recommend no more than part-time employment.
Yes, you can extend. There is a $25 administrative fee to extend your program. The program administrator can provide you with further details on extensions.
We must receive your application by the application deadline as listed above. Once we receive your complete application, it takes approximately week for acceptance to be determined. We will send acceptance notification by email. Upon acceptance into the program, you must pay half the tuition. The remainder of your tuition must be paid before you begin classes.
With master classes, student advising, mentoring, and BDCTP staffing, tuition represent a discounted rate, and so scholarships are not available for BDCTP students.
