The CityDance Conservatory offers students specialized training, rich performance opportunities and strong connections to the professional dance world. Graduates have gained acceptance at some of the country's most prestigious dance colleges, summer programs and professional companies.

A limited amount of merit scholarships are available for students whose talent and commitment is at the highest level. Scholarships are available to Conservatory students, across all genres, and at the discretion of the Artistic Director, Lorraine Spiegler.
