Since 2015, The Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Collaboration has created multifaceted experiences that provide an innovative performing arts education curriculum for students in grades K–12. Over the past 5 years, we have developed the Juilliard Approach to K–12 Classroom Instruction to take this curriculum from concept to implementation, enriching the classroom experience for 50,000+ students across Nord Anglia Education’s global network of schools.

Juilliard in the Classroom
Juilliard curriculum specialists and alumni artists frequently visit NAE schools around the world to bring excellence into classrooms and ignite students’ love of the performing arts.
Juilliard curriculum specialists are experienced educators and artists who have expertise in the Juilliard approach to classroom instruction, teacher collaboration, and Juilliard Creative Classroom resources. In addition to supporting NAE teachers to successfully implement the enhanced curriculum, curriculum specialists engage the school community by co-leading workshops with teachers for parents and school staff, providing professional development opportunities, coaching student ensembles, and leading rehearsals and class discussions.
- Juilliard Artist Visits Throughout the year, NAE schools host visits from Juilliard artists who are often Juilliard alumni. These performers, choreographers, composers, and directors engage with NAE students and families in a variety of settings, from master classes and workshops to community-wide concerts.

Programs for Advanced Study
Juilliard has created technical training programs with Nord Anglia Education for students who wish to advance their skill-based learning in the performing arts.
Summer Performing Arts with Juilliard offers immersive experiences in dance, drama, and music to 10–18 year olds from around the world. Students explore their creative talent in an intensive setting with focus on both private instruction and ensemble work. With three tailored programs offered in Geneva, Florida, and Shanghai, young artists have a special opportunity to engage with and learn from Juilliard artist faculty.
After School Arts with Juilliard gives students the opportunity to study with Juilliard alumni and affiliated artists in weekly afterschool sessions. Through skills-based lessons, our professional artists focus on enhancing technical and performance skills and cultivating artistic expression. Whether in private lessons or in small groups, students study with working artists to grow and develop as actors, dancers, and musicians.
“I really liked how I was able to learn new techniques, and be able to apply them to my work. I will never forget the advice I received from my teachers and friends this summer!”
