Develop your technique, immerse yourself in a supportive artistic community, and deepen your practice.

The Professional Training Program enrolls intermediate and advanced dancers, ages 18 and older, who have previous experience and curiosity in the field of dance. Dancers develop technique and strengthen their knowledge-base. Dance-makers have the opportunity to create and dig into composition and process. Teachers refresh and refine skills for the classroom and the studio.

While maintaining health and safety and adhering to CDC guidelines, after a successful 2022 festival, BDF will welcome back a full student body in 2023. Applications for 2023 have closed. Consider dropping into a class with us this summer!
