Students train in a variety of disciplines including Ballet, Pointe/Pre-Pointe, Men’s Technique (Advanced level only), Modern, Contemporary, Jazz, Theatre Dance, Pilates and Improvisation. In addition to the 20+ mandatory classes per week, students are permitted to choose a limited number of optional sessions from Peridance’s Open Classes, including hip hop, African dance, tap and yoga.

For the first four camps, participants stayed at the Stevens Institute of Technology in the lovely city of Hoboken. This university campus on the banks of the Hudson River has views of the Manhattan skyline that come straight out of a movie.
A change in the accommodation policy at the Stevens Institute of Technology regarding under-18s meant that we moved to the magnificent Riverhouse apartments in Jersey City, just a stone’s throw from the Hudson River and opposite Lower Manhattan. This was a unique experience for our students: Riverhouse Apartments became a home from home. In 2014 we returned to university campus accommodation and to 182 Broadway where Pace University is located, right in the heart of the financial district of Manhattan. Students make the daily journey from the university accommodation to the training centers under the supervision of our staff, in this case from Manhattan to Queens on public transport (subway).
The dance program in NYC is rounded off with a large number of tours, visits and shows such as: Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks, Central Park, Empire State Building, Midtown, China Town, Financial District, Battery Park, Statue of Liberty, American Museum of Natural History, Jersey City, American BBQ, Gala Dinner and outdoor movies.
This program ensures youngsters are immersed in both the language and culture of the USA, spending entire training days alongside teachers and youngsters, almost all of whom are North American!
Students can select from a variety of techniques and styles, dancing alongside New York City pros!
