Yes, there are performing arts high schools in the U.S. in most big cities. Manhattan has a few of them, some public and some private. There are two that I know of in Southern California.

There are many summer camps that have theatre and dance programs. The two most popular ones on the East Coast are Stagedoor Manor and French Woods.

Hi Kate,

Atlanta has a performing arts school that someone on this site told me about (thank you, by the way). It's called Pebblebrook. Hannah is auditioning for it next March. And it's a public school! Which means no tuition. Rumor has it, that Raven Samone attended there

We are moving on June 1st by the way! So excited!!

And there is one, just outside of Boston, called Walnut Hill www.walnuthillarts.org

I know the Boston Ballet has their summer intensive there.
