Performing Arts

Students who are already pursuing higher education can benefit from taking compressed courses during the summer. These summer courses can be taken in a number of different subjects to suit the needs of a student’s interests or degree requirements.

What is a summer course in performing arts? The options for these summer classes vary according to the type of institution and the area of concentration the student chooses. Some students may want to take the summer to focus on a specific area of acting, such as classical drama or comedy, while others may focus on developing an extra drama skill, such as directing. The summer classes could be translated into credits toward a degree in drama or the performing arts.

A summer course in performing arts provides an opportunity to concentrate on an aspect of dramatic or performing arts that might not be available as part of the regular curriculum. In addition, a summer course could enable a student to develop a specific project.

The cost of a summer course in performing arts depends on the location and popularity of the institution offering the course, the level and the materials used. For some students, financial aid may be available to reduce the costs.

Summer classes in performing arts enable students to work towards a degree or may further one’s plans to embark in a career in theater or drama. A summer course may involve a project that could lead to a longer-term run of a play or a career in dramatic arts. The graduate of a performing arts degree may find a career in theater management, performance, stage direction, and even film making.

Many colleges and universities or schools for the arts offer a number of performing arts courses during the summer. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of your chose by filling in the lead form.

The yuga-dharma for this age is kirtanad eva krsnasya (Bhag. 12.3.51): kirtan of Krishna’s holy names.

Vision statement

The Kirtan Course prepares students for a genuine kirtan experience, which they can have again and again and also impart to others. Aim 1) The philosophy, moods, and skills for chanting the holy names By teaching participants to chant with the proper understanding (sambandha) and in the proper way (abhideya), we wish to empower them to chant with a genuine taste. Sambandha: The knowledge of who the object of kirtan is (Krishna) and who the person doing kirtan is (a soul, part of Krishna). This is the foundation of Krishna kirtan. When properly engaging in kirtan, one will taste the love of Godhead on increasing levels. Abhideya: The means to attain the goal (prayojana) works only when properly executed. Therefore the first module will place a lot of emphasis on the right execution of kirtan. The taste for chanting is most important so that the devotees continue to chant the holy names throughout their lives with increasing appreciation. The kirtan course aims to succeed by addressing this need to chant with genuine devotional taste. To this end, it will hold workshops, scheduled kirtans before the Deities... [-]
