Welcome to Juilliard

For over a century, students have enrolled in The Juilliard School and graduated to fulfill their dreams in the performing arts. Dancers, actors, playwrights, classical and jazz musicians—all have come here to hone their craft and deepen their artistry.

A career in the arts is challenging, but the only way to make it happen is to risk: To risk taking that audition, creating that work of art, exposing who you are.

We invite you to take the step of applying to Juilliard, and we look forward to supporting you on your artistic journey.
