Performing Arts: When you have special talents, choosing a college must involve personal assessments about priorities, goals, professional commitment, talent, and your direction for the future. Are you the next great star?
Programs for performing artists vary from school to school, and as an aspiring performer you need to research colleges thoroughly to learn which are best in your area of interest.
Many colleges offering performing arts programs, offer more to grad students. This is especially true in film studies. Check out your schools of interest carefully.
