For ballet, you have to go out into the community. Providence Ballet is up and running as of December (they had to renovate studios after a fire), and DD expects to take classes there when she returns. DD liked the classes at Heritage Ballet in Lincoln, but without a car it is a longish schlep by bus and foot. Festival Ballet might be a good alternative if your dancer were looking to follow an advanced training program with daily classes; they do not offer advanced drop-in classes for adults.
I'll alert DD to this thread, in case she has more to say.

Yes, you're right, it's bus #42 -- the Hope Street line, going north.
I would definitely hop on the bus by starbucks on Thayer St. I believe you want to take line 42. It drops you off right down the street from FBP.
Festival Ballet is at 825 Hope Street.
The phone number is (401)353-1129
Here's a link to their website:

Green river, no, it hasn't changed. None of the ballet dancers I know are considering applying to Brown because of that, except for the ones who are giving up dancing. However, if you are asking about Brown, then that must mean that academically, you're a very capable student, which could put you in the running for Columbia. Their dance program (Barnard's program, shared with Columbia students) IS high caliber. Many of the dancers there have already been apprentices or trainees with ballet companies, so the technical level is high. Lots more to say, but it's really more appropriate for the Columbia threads. Take a look over there.
Anytime emotions are involved, you cannot come up with an impartial and objective assessment of any given problem.
