UPCOMING AUDITION DATE: Monday April 18th
The Bachelor of Performing Arts (BPA) program is unique in Canada. Nowhere else in the country have four academic arts institutions partnered to offer a cross-disciplinary performing arts degree that has, at its heart, a commitment to collaboration and self-generation – elements which are crucial to young artists’ future success.
The program’s primary objective is real-world training. It is ideal for those who want to practice as a professional performing artist, arts manager, administrator or cultural entrepreneur, or those who wish to continue on to graduate studies in the performing arts. The program offers students the unique opportunity to create original multi-disciplinary shows while developing the entrepreneurial skills necessary to make a self-directed performing arts career feasible.
The program runs May – January, with classes during the summer and fall semesters, and the capstone Interdisciplinary Production (project) each January. If you have a specific question about the program, you can contact us via email or call 604.527.5495
If you are applying to the BPA program from an institute outside the three host institutions, please apply as early as possible in order to confirm your eligibility prior to the audition date.
