BPMI Dance is a program founded and created by Heather Easley. It exists at The Boston Conservatory at Berklee and Berklee College of Music with the purpose of bridging the gap between student life and professional life. The program gives dancers and choreographers the opportunity to present their work at music festivals across the country. It helps students develop skills in directing, managing, working with an artist and production team, as well as providing them with real world experience to enhance their craft.
Heather created BPMI Dance, as an addition to the BPMI program in the 2019-2020 academic year, as a opportunity to give dancers and choreographers real world experience that can enhance their craft and help them bridge the gap between student and professional life.
In its founding year, arrangements were made for the group to perform with a highly sought-after rap/hip-hop artist at Lollapalooza. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, these plans were unable to be carried out.
Even though Heather has graduated from the university, BPMI Dance continues to go on and is a program many students hope to be involved in.
