The housing is definitely an issue...during the past few months I have spoken with several parents of current Upper 1 and 2 dancers who moved to Manhattan when their children were accepted, but this is not an option for me. I am hopeful that if my daughter were to be accepted (she is auditioning this coming weekend), we could identify a host family somehow. If she were accepted, I'm also wondering how soon we would have to accept a spot at JKO, because it will likely take some time to confirm whether or not we can identify acceptable housing.

Looking for any advice on housing as well as do the students stay year round or just sept through May?

The school can provide a list of housing options, some within walking distance. I would start there as the list contains places that have gained trust throughout the years from former/current students. Some students only stay Sept.-May, but some also stay all year long if they attend ABT’s 5-week SI, or if it’s just the best option for them (for example, international students).

DanceMumNYC by learningdance thank you for the advice. We are just waiting to hear back on any housing options at this point.

learningdance Do you have personal experience with Pink Dorms?  Their website says 18+, do you know if they sometimes allow younger residents?
