The Young Dancers Intensive is a rigorous, highly structured, and carefully supervised residential intensive designed for serious dance students ages 14 to 18.

Students take five classes a day, attend performances, work with professional faculty members and guest artists, and receive personalized mentorship. 

The Young Dancers Intensive: Extensions is a new one-week program, designed for a cohort of up to twenty advanced students ages 16 to 18 to continue their training alongside BDF’s Professional Training Program.

Students will be placed into morning classes alongside PTP students, and will participate in special afternoon workshops and master classes facilitated by BDF faculty and artists-in-residence.
