The tuition-free Estelle Dennis/Peabody Dance Training Program for Boys, established in 2009, is a ground-breaking opportunity for selected boys from the Baltimore metropolitan area who have the potential and a strong desire to dance. Each May, June, and September, Peabody Dance holds auditions to select up to 25 exceptional boys — some with no or little previous training. Accepted boys receive tuition-free training in an all-boys dance class, some free dance attire, opportunities to view live performances and take master classes with successful male dancers, and to participate in performances with Peabody Dance.
Recent graduates have entered dance programs at Adelphi University, Point Park University, and the University of the Arts; attended summer dance programs hosted by American Ballet Theatre, Pacific Northwest Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, the School of American Ballet, Boston Ballet, Pennsylvania Ballet, The Washington Ballet, Dance Theatre of Harlem, Orlando Ballet, Paul Taylor American Modern Dance, and Complexions Contemporary Ballet, among others; and have been invited to join Philadanco! D/2.
