2021 Career Paths in the Arts Program
July 13 to 23, 2021
Tuesday – Friday, 1:30pm to 3:00pm
FREE Program, Accepting Students Ages 14 to 18

Calling all students! If you are a singer, dancer, actor, musician, artist, or lover of performing arts, we want to share career options with you! There is bound to be a role perfect for you.  You will learn about live performance venues, film, set design, production management, talent buying, dance as a business, museum curating, fundraising, marketing, and more. With our mentoring assistance, our goal is to introduce the spectrum of career opportunities in these industries and for students who have a passion
for the Performing Arts to figure out for themselves, how to follow their dreams and be successful!   We will educate, inspire, and mentor our students to gain the confidence they need in the real world!

This is a ten-day program – eight days of virtual learning and two in person days (one day to shadow a professional at a show and one day to enjoy a show as a patron).
