Which is better, vanilla or chocolate? Only you can decide which program best meets what you are looking for. What type(s) of dance do you do? What are your performance goals? I can't speak directly to either program, but you need to be more specific about what you wish to get from and contribute to a program before anyone with experience can give you meaningful answers.

We looked at dance programs at SPS, Deerfield, Choate, Hotchkiss, Emma & MPS. Our DD wanted a Dance Company. We also considered which school programs offered varied performance opportunities. Keep in mind that joining a Dance Company may demand more hours than you are prepared to commit to in BS. IMHO, SPS & Deerfield offered strong Dance Company programs among the co-ed schools. Choate had a couple of options depending on your interests including a step group. MPS & Emma had excellent dance programs and companies, also. So, do consider those. SPS was more classical-ballet in focus - with serious dancers, some of whom pursue professional programs. Deerfield had a combination of excellent dance program offerings and performance opportunities as well as Company. The school offered more options for dancers who wanted to also pursue other EC’s, such as a sport or music - in addition to dance.

@Golfgr8 This is so helpful!! Thank you very much! We discovered St.Paul might have the best dance program among BSs, but not sure if that's going to be too much as my DD is not pursuing dance as her major, rather as an EC which she feels so passionate about. We do like what we learned about the Deerfield dance program.
