10 Students rated The Boston Conservatory
The Boston Conservatory at Berklee is the place to be for anyone seeking a Musical Theater heavy training program. Every teacher is very professional and allows every student to learn at their own pace. It teaches us valuable life skills for when we leave the school and move to make this a career. I have only been at the school for a year now and I feel I have learned more in this one year than I have over the past 8 years training outside the school.
The Boston Conservatory is an arts conservatory. So, for what it is it is absolutely amazing. There are hundreds of performance opportunities every year and you get to be surrounded by other artists. However, if you have interests outside of the arts it is not the place for you. I have been frustrated by the lack of extracurricular activities. Besides that, it has been an amazing experience so far. The classes are challenging, the faculty is amazing, and there is truly no better college town than Boston.
It is the best place to receive a Bachelor of Music degree.
I am currently a student at The Boston Conservatory at Berklee, completing my B.F.A. in dance with a specialization in ballet. My professional plans are to audition and be accepted into a ballet company when I graduate. The ballet companies I am interested in auditioning for include Boston Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Nashville Ballet, and Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre. I would love to be able to dance in a company for another ten years, then work as a ballet teacher, or start my own ballet school. I will also graduate The Boston Conservatory as a certified ballet teacher. I was also accepted into a teacher certification program that is taught in partnership with the Royal Academy of Dance in London, as an additional program of study. When I graduate, I will be certified to teach all levels of ballet, anywhere in the world.
I have always been in love with ballet and have trained for many years. I started dancing at the age of five, and began taking ballet lessons at Boston Ballet School when I was seven years old. I was promoted to the professional track by the faculty at Boston Ballet School when I turned eight. I received all of my ballet training from the Boston Ballet School until I became a teenager, and my family moved to New York. I then continued my training at Joffrey Ballet School. When I completed my ballet training there, I was accepted as a Trainee with Joffrey Ballet in Chicago, then went on to receive an Apprenticeship with California Ballet Company in San Diego, after my family relocated to California. While I worked as an Apprentice at California Ballet in San Diego, I began to teach ballet to children at several studios in San Diego: Del Mar Ballet, Dance & Co., Golden Dragon Chinese School, and San Diego Civic Youth Ballet. For three years, I taught two full-session Ballet I classes, as well as two full-session Adult Ballet classes at these studios, and worked often as a substitute in various classes such as Jazz and Modern Dance on a “as needed” basis. Except for my Adult Ballet class, I primarily taught students between the ages of six and twelve, and discovered that I loved to teach as much as I loved to dance!
I came to The Boston Conservatory to become a more versatile dancer eligible to audition for admission to top companies, and to become certified as a ballet teacher for when I am considered too old to dance. My career goals are to graduate and obtain my B.F.A from the Boston Conservatory at Berklee, and receive my teaching certification from The Royal Academy of Dance in London, while maintaining my current grade point average. My next goal is to begin auditioning for ballet companies once I am in my final year at The Conservatory. My studies at The Boston Conservatory will greatly enrich and strengthen my dance abilities in all forms of dance including ballet, and will make me competitive with other dancers auditioning for positions in companies. Additionally, the curriculum from The Royal Academy of Dance will provide me with the tools necessary to become a successful dance teacher in a K through 12 public or private school for the next generation of dance students!

I attend the Boston Conservatory as a dance major and dance for 4-6 hours a day. So, I would tell myself to enjoy the weekends more and enjoy the down time you have. I am constently working through the weekends, having rehearsals, and getting ready for any upcoming shows. In high school I had much more free time and took advantage of it, in college I very rarely have any free time. I would also tell my self to work on finacial management. It is so easy when your on your own to spend money and it goes quickly. College life has been amazing and not to much different for me other than I am a lot busier than I ever was in high school. Being on your own shows you how hard it is to not have your parents looking out for you. Making your own choices effects you in ways you never thought possible.
Musical Theatre Program... It is ranked in the top 5 of the nation.
The Boston Conservatory is a small school where everyone knows each other which helps provide a comfortable atmosphere where you can grow and challenge yourself as a future professional in the arts.
The Boston Conservatory is a private institution that educates students in a small, nurturing environment. Students receive one-on-one attention and are given critiques that will benefit them in the entertainment industry. All of the professors and instructors know their students' names and note individual progress to encourage growth to its full potential. The school is located in a great area of Boston, which exposes students to the theatrical and cultural aspects on the artistic city.
As a Conservatory the focus is on performing arts. While I have to take a science class, that class studies the throat and how it relates to my vocals. I am striving to gain a Bachelor of Music, a very specific goal. My days are filled with voice lessons, choral rehearsals, ear training, etc. We don's have a sports team! On the weedends I may attend up to four performances of my own and other classmates of professors. At a traditional university life is much more geared toward a group experienc...mine focuses on our individual talents.
The tuition price. I cant afford to be at The Boston Conservatory even though I have a scholarship, so my parents have had to make sacrifices for me to be here.
A person who is very dedicated to and passionate about his or her art, whether it be music, dance, or theatre, should attend the Boston Conservatory. Students here work very hard and are committed to their studies. Performance is not an area of study where one can just mosey through and accept what a lazy attitude produces. A constant striving for growth and improvement is a necessary quality at the Boston Conservatory.
Someone who is not ready to work and practice every day to master on their art. If you do not have the motivation and drive to put in countless hours of practice, you will not succeed. Someone who does not know that performing (or composing) is exactly what they want to be doing for the next 4 years. At The Boston Conservatory, you take one liberal arts class per semester- every other class pertains to your major (I.e. Voice lessons, Tap, Ballet, Orchesta, etc.). Someone without great motivation should not attend this school.
The small classes and the one on one attention we receive.
My fellow classmates are some of the smartest, friendliest people I have ever met- above and beyond the individuals I met in high school.
Facilliltes are old
The most frustrating part of being at The Boston Conservatory is trying to adjust to the winter in Boston. The school has a new theater complex with state of the art dance studios under construction right now, but this year, dance students must commute during the day from dance studio to dance studio for classes. I am from Miami and facing the cold weather and snow between classes during my walk to the next studio has been a challenge and an adjustment. The new theater/studio complex will open on campus in the fall so that will solve that problem.
