The school hires teachers that are CURRENTLY working out in the field that they teach. It's pretty cool to be able to talk to your teachers about their past AND current experiences that favor your liking. Also, the fact that the school is in the city, you get to explore many cultures of the city life, the fast past of everything and beauty is eccentric! Also, the fact that our school is extremely dedicated to the arts, you are always able to do hands-on experience with your craft, speak and work with professionals and are continually encouraged to do what you love. Also, for a private arts school, it's not AS expensive as NYU or UCLA.
