Our ISVP Professional Semester is the international counterpart of our elite Professional Semester, providing the same comprehensive training to international students. Train alongside New York City’s best dancers, and emerge as a fiercely competitive professional both here in the US and abroad.
This 4-month course is the ideal option for advanced international dancers, ages 18-27, looking to launch their professional careers. Our comprehensive syllabus includes multi-disciplinary technique classes, practical seminars to educate you on the industry, mock auditions to provide real-world experience, and numerous networking opportunities to secure your footing as a working artist.
BDC has sought the input of countless industry professionals in crafting this powerful program designed to maximize your time with us and offer you every tool and skill you’ll need to succeed.
Here are some of the elements that make up this comprehensive full-time program:
The ISVP Professional Semester is a serious full-time course of study, so it is imperative that you come prepared to give your program the highest priority. Though schedules do vary, accepted dancers should be available weekday mornings from 8-11am regularly for mandatory program events.
BDC offers rolling admissions but you are encouraged to apply early to reserve your spot in the program. You will be notified of acceptance within 3 weeks after receipt of your completed application via email. You must have a valid email address.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to apply. Applications are considered based on dance training, marketability, and professionalism.

In order to succeed in the program, students must arrive with the necessary funds to support their living expenses during the semester. The M-1 Visa is a non-working visa, so students are not permitted to work during their studies. Please defer your application to the following semester if you need more time to amass these funds.
Students whose application is refused by Immigration will receive a refund for all tuition paid, except application fees and some processing fees. These students must return the original I-20 and submit a copy of the letter from the U.S. Embassy or other proof stating reason for denial.
There are no refunds once you have begun the program, and no refunds will be given for any absences not made up during period of study.
