5 Things I Love About Juilliard

5 Things I Love About Juilliard

In honor of Valentine's Day here are the things I love most about this school!

5. Location
Juilliard is right in the middle of New York's Upper West Side! We're steps away from the Met Opera, Lincoln Center Theater, and New York City Ballet. We're a block away from Central Park and a few Subway stops from Broadway. The neighborhood is beautiful, safe, and attracts artists from all over the world.

4. Shows
Juilliard is the home of over 700 performance a year. There is always something to see every night. Be it, a concert in Paul Hall, a dance workshop in the Wilson, or a play in the drama theater. As students it's seems like we are always bouncing back and forth from different school venues seeing our friends and classmates perform. And then performances are consistently stunning!

3. Student Life/ Extracurricular Activities
Student here really get involved! Just like any other school we have student led clubs and organizations, student council and various student leadership positions. But here at Juilliard we also have an active group of student led service trips heading all over the world. Community Outreach Fellowships, Teaching Fellowships, the possibilities here are endless with what students can get involved in.

2. Faculty and Staff
We are home to the hardest working teachers and staff members. They are focused on sharing their knowledge with us and helping us become the best artist we can be. There is always someone to turn to if you need help. Even cross divisionally, my mentor is a dance faculty member and I am constantly reaching out to her. Juilliard would be nothing without it superb teachers carrying on a legacy or hard work and cultivating artistic talent.

1. Students
There are only 800 of us but the students here are Juilliard are certainly the thing I love most. Just walking down the halls you witness world class performances. I love being on the third floor and hearing a Jazz Ensemble rehearsal, while watching glimpses of a dance workshop rehearsal as I memorize my lines. There is truly no end to the amazement here. I am blessed that I get to see my friends shine in their element all the time.

I love my school!

Happy Valentines Day!
