All of our 2023 programming will take place in Orlando, Florida, giving students the opportunity to participate in 2 back-to-back performing arts programs. Each of our programs are led by Juilliard Artist Faculty and give students the opportunity to dive deeply into their chosen major, while developing their technical skills and artistic capacities. The program welcomes and celebrates students from around the world to join together in our global community of artists.
Session 1: 25 June to 8 July 2023
The Drama major is an opportunity for students to have a small but potent taste of the first two years of Juilliard acting training. Your teachers will be Juilliard professors and Juilliard graduates with a deep knowledge of Juilliard’s approach.
Working and playing individually and in groups, students will become immersed in the experience of heightened language, physical expression, and a uniquely rewarding process of acting. Come join us as we bring the page to life and explore the joys of living vividly and creatively in a variety of theatrical circumstances.
Students will experience workshops that focus on creative physical expression, vocal exploration with text and music, ensemble acting, and a variety of fun techniques aimed toward liberating the theatrical imagination.
