Press Hit

The Boston Conservatory has been named the top conservatory in the United States at which to study dance. The distinction comes from Backstage magazine, the leading resource for actors, singers, dancers, and associated performing arts professionals. Backstage wrote that The Boston Conservatory is widely recognized as the best program for contemporary dance. The Backstage criterion for choosing its top dance programs was the commitment from teachers for ensuring that students would reach their ultimate potential as dancers. 

Last year, ranked The Boston Conservatory fourth on its list of the Top 10 Dance Colleges in the Country, calling it the best contemporary program.

The merger between Berklee and The Boston Conservatory becomes official on June 1, 2016.
