BUSTI students actively participate in all-day classes and rehearsals throughout the week.
On the weekends, students attend Required Core Curriculum Events in support of the training. Core events from past summers have included performances at Cirque du Soleil, Shakespeare on the Common, Broadway in Boston, American Repertory Theatre, and visits to the Institute of Contemporary Art, Museum of Fine Arts, and the MIT Museum. These events are required as part of BUSTI’s curriculum to complement the learning in the classroom, and cannot be missed.
The Teaching Assistants also organize a series of optional activities to introduce students to Boston’s rich history and culture. The New England Aquarium, Boston Pops 4th of July Celebration, the Freedom Trail, movies, restaurants, parks, and beaches are among the recreational offerings that await the summer Bostonian. Access to city sights is as easy as jumping on the “T” (Boston’s public transit system).
