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!
