Performing Arts

A foundation year prepares students to enter their desired field of study. It lasts one year and is an introduction into a full-degree program. Different courses are required, and after the year-long foundation is laid, students are able to get into the degree program of their choice.

Studies in performing arts encompass both the academic and practical fields of music, theater and dance. From theater history to advanced choreography, the field of performing arts lends a wide lens of study for a variety of students.

Europe is the sixth largest continent and includes 47 countries and assorted dependencies, islands and territories. It is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the south, Asia to the east, and the Atlantic Ocean to the West.
