Musical Theater Dance Intensive

July 13-August 2, 2014

Is it your dream to be a triple threat on Broadway? The Boston Conservatory's Musical Theater Dance Intensive (MTDI) offers talented young dancers the opportunity to deepen their skills and challenge their abilities as they work with Broadway veterans and acclaimed faculty in rigorous training in ballet, jazz and theater dance. The dance program is complemented with classes in voice and acting to build triple threat performers.

Students will emerge from this three-week intensive with increased technical abilities in ballet, jazz and theater dance, improved skills in choral ensemble work, and greater confidence in and understanding of acting skills and how they apply to "acting the song."

Read more about the Musical Theater Dance Intensive in this month's Dance Magazine.
