Training & Intensives

Performing Arts Abroad Training & Intensive programs give you the chance to train in your discipline. These opportunities are similar to our study abroad options, but are usually for a much shorter time period and do not include an academic transcript as most of these programs are hosted by studios, academies, and theaters instead of universities. The focus of PAA Training & Intensive programs is improving your abilities as a performing artist, and in many cases, learning new styles and genres in their original cultural context.
