The College Dance Fair Is Coming!

If you're a rising junior or senior living in the Southeast, you'll want to mark your calendar for the College Dance Fair, taking place in Boca Raton, FL, from August 29-31. The Dance Fair brings several great college and university dance programs together under one roof, and gives you the opportunity to speak one-on-one with admissions counselors.

Want to know how often you'll get to perform as an undergrad? How 'bout what the dance studios are like on each campus or whether there'll be opportunities to show your own choreography? Curious how often guest artists come to teach? Don't be shy - now's the time to ask!

The Dance Fair also hosts two days of master classes with teachers from the various colleges. This is a great chance to get a feel for different teachers before you throw yourself into the college audition process.

Applying to college can feel completely overwhelming. But you'll be able to make the best possible choices if you're well informed about each of the schools you're considering.

Isabella Boylston in "The Bright Stream" (Rosalie O'Connor, courtesy American Ballet Theatre)

Beloved by ballet fans for her lucid technique and onstage effervescence, by her Instagram followers for the deftly curated photos and videos she shares of her glamorous life, and by fangirl Jennifer Garner for all of the above, American Ballet Theatre principal Isabella Boylston is one of the rare ballet stars who's achieved mainstream fame. A native of Sun Valley, ID, Boylston trained at the Academy of Colorado Ballet and the Harid Conservatory before joining the ABT Studio Company in 2005. She entered the main company as an apprentice in 2006, and attained principal status in 2014. In addition to her successes with ABT, where she dances nearly every major ballerina role, Boylston has served as artistic director of the annual Ballet Sun Valley Festival, which brings high-level performances and classes to her hometown. And speaking of famous Jennifers: Boylston recently appeared as Jennifer Lawrence's dance double in the film Red Sparrow. Catch her onstage with ABT as Manon, Odette/Odile, and Princess Aurora during the company's Metropolitan Opera House season this summer in NYC. —Margaret Fuhrer
