Year-Round Program

The Conservatory’s Year-Round Program, designed for advanced, classically-trained dancers ages 17 through 23, provides rigorous training in ballet and modern dance as well as considerable studio time working with contemporary choreographers (the excerpts of the piece "Bill" shown above, choreographed by Israeli choreographer Sharon Eyal and set by former Batsheva dancer Doug Letheren, were taped during informal, in-studio showings on two different days).

Students receive approximately 28 hours of training per week, including in-depth instruction in classical ballet, modern, pointe, improvisation, and choreographic composition as well as studio time with accomplished choreographers. Each semester concludes with an informal showcase performance open to the public.

Acceptance into the program is based on in-person audition only. Anyone wishing to audition for the Fall 2017 semester may arrange to do so at any of the scheduled auditions for the 2017 Summer Intensive Program during January-March by contacting Sarah Woods-LaDue.

Our Fall 2016 semester, currently in-progress, will end December 16th, 2016, our Spring 2017 semester will run January 4th through May 12th, 2017 and our Fall 2017 semester will run September 6th through December 15th, 2017.
