Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance Theatre

Dance Theatre Conservatory Program

AMDA Dance Theatre develops adept and versatile
dancers for theatrical, commercial and concert
performance. Grounded in classical technique,
AMDAthe Dance Theatre programs also include
focused studies in a variety of dance styles and disciplines (e.g., contemporary, modern, tap, musical theater, hip-hop and partnering), as well as acting, voice, improvisation, and other essential performance skills.


Dancers have the tremendous professional advantage of training at both AMDA campuses—New York City and Hollywood—learning from teachers and guest artists that create and perform here today. AMDA offers two educational paths: a four-semester Conservatory Program that transitions dancers swiftly into the industry; and an eight-semester Bachelor of Fine Arts degree that encourages further self-exploration and discovery.


Both AMDA programs provide rigorous conservatory training—graduating skilled, adaptable and marketable dancers.
