About Performing Arts Abroad

Year Founded: 2011

Performing Arts Abroad (PAA) is an organization that strives to enhance understanding and awareness of the diverse world through arts of theater, music, and dance. PAA sends students and participants on trips for study, intern, volunteer, and career workshops abroad. We believe the experience of cross-cultural collaboration is invaluable for performing artists and is committed to providing international programming of the highest caliber to promote a more global perspective for our participants. Our participants do not have to worry about working behind a desk. By focusing on the performance aspect of theater, music, and dance, participants gain specific training in their craft and are able to bring their own arts experiences to an international community.
