Brighton Dance Studios

robsham theater arts center

Opened in 2007, the Brighton Dance Studios (BDS) are a state of the art dance facility located at 2115 Commonwealth Avenue on Boston College’s Brighton Campus, less than a ten-minute walk from the Robsham Theater Arts Center.


The primary objective of the Brighton Dance Studios is to serve the growing need for appropriate dance rehearsal space for student dance troupes, performance clubs and other dance-related organizations overseen by Student Affairs.  This rehearsal facility was designed to improve the quality of the student life and enhance the rehearsal process by providing a safe, suitable environment for dance and movement training.

The Brighton Dance Studios are composed of three rooms dedicated to dance, the largest which is a basketball court-sized dance space equipped with mirrors, a sound system, ballet barres and a coat room.

The Brighton Dance Studios also supports Boston College’s Theatre Department, hosting academic dance classes, dance rehearsals and movement-related programs.

If you have a question about the Brighton Dance Studios, including how to reserve the space, please see the link to the Venue Information Packet (VIP) listed above in on the right hand column or contact Shep Barnett, Associate Director of the Robsham Theater via email at
