“With both concert dance and commercial dance programs within the same school, George Brown keeps the connection between the two. There is also jazz, acting, and vocal. Those are big skills to make a good performer, even if all you do is modern dance, after. The program prepares you for when you’re finished, to know what type of dancer you want to be.”

“You have to do other things—you have to be a writer, a stage manager, a marketing and development person. All these different things are a part of you. Especially when you’re young, you should be learning those. If it wasn’t for the teachers I had and the connections I had with the teachers, I definitely wouldn’t be where I am.”

“As a dancer who wants to dance all the time, GBD is “the dream”. Students get to dance pretty much all day, which allows you to spend valuable time training and practicing. I knew how important ballet was for fundamental dance training and we received this training daily. Students are also trained in contemporary, jazz dance, vocals, acting, composition and choreography. The program targets every point of the spectrum of dance you will need to become a professional.”
