International Student Visa Program (ISVP) - Questions

Broadway Dance Center has been providing the finest in dance instruction since 1984, and our faculty is world-renowned. The International Student Visa 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.

The ISVP 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 all levels. Our program is constructed in a non-competitive atmosphere, and the sense of community among our students is strong. We understand you are far from home and we are confident you will feel at home with us.

Dancers with professional training will find many options to support their progress. No previous formal training, however, is specifically required. We accept applications from students and teachers at all levels. We look for applicants with a strong desire to train intensively and the desire to work hard to achieve their goals. We have found, however, that absolute beginners have difficulty building a curriculum at our studios, and we 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.

The M-1 is a type of student visa used for vocational training schools and non-English language schools. Schools teaching specialized skills or trade arts are included under this visa. Universities and English schools are covered under F-1 visas. Once accepted, students may arrive in the US up to 30 days prior to the start of the program and remain in the US for 30 days following the end date of the program.

No, while studying under the M-1 visa student visa, students are not permitted to work in the United States.

Yes, you can extend. There is a $100 administrative fee to extend your program. The program administrator can provide you with further details on extensions

receive your complete application, it takes about one 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. Broadway Dance Center will not send the I-20 Certificate of Eligibility until the first half of tuition has been received. Once you receive your I-20 you will apply to the American Embassy or Consulate in your country to receive the visa.

Due to US Work visa restrictions, currently we have no scholarship programs available in conjunction with the International Student Visa Program.
