The Programs We Offer

We teach students how to act, how to build sets and light them, how to write comedy, how to write a novel, how to publish it, how to perform music. Students receive both theoretical and practical training from the day they arrive - and it’s this combination that sets us apart and prepares our students to succeed.

The program is for those who wish to successfully combine passion for the arts, culture and heritage with business acumen and management skills.
