When I was auditioning for dance programs, I was looking for a college that has a supportive community environment and facilitates international connections in the dance community. At my Purchase audition I met so many amazing and kind people. As we were waiting for our turn everyone was talking and hyping each other up. It became clear to me that it is a supportive and loving community here. Between the conservatory’s amazing guest choreographers and incredible abroad opportunities, I knew it had the international aspect I was looking for.
