Headlong Performance Institute offers an intensive 14-week program equivalent to a full semester of academic credit at the 300-level. Credit is granted through Bryn Mawr College (BMC). BMC is a women's college, but HPI accepts students of any gender identity.

Please note that class content is more integrated and there is more time spent in the studio than typical college courses.
