Performing Arts Abroad Reviews
Immersive Spanish experience!
Submitted by Anna Joy - Grand Valley State University | September 12, 2017
I am so thankful the opportunity I had and the scholarship I received to do this program through Performing Arts Abroad. The experience stretched me in many ways and teaching music in Spanish presented a whole new challenge for me. Though not everything turned out exactly as I expected (less volunteering than I originally thought), I enjoyed each of my 16 days in Costa Rica and I was given an extra week of Spanish classes at no extra cost! My weekend excursions made me want to come back to this beautiful country to see more of what it has to offer and I already miss my host mother's cooking... Pura Vida!

The program was amazing. everything we did was a memory i'll carry with me forever. the classes were all helpful and being able to see the shows and meet people in the industry gave me a real insight on the job i want to pursue.
Amazing program, amazing people, less amazing housing

Overall I had an amazing time on this trip. I bonded with people both from the high school section and college section of PAA and have made some lifetime friendships. Not to mention the program itself was so well organized and run and it gave me some much confidence and reassurance about my life in the future as a performer. I would HIGHLY recommend this program to anyone thinking of going into a musical theatre career and or going to drama school in the UK. On a more negative note, as a member of the high school group, we were staying in the generator hostile. I was in a room with three other people (from the program) that was barely big enough to accommodate 2 of us. For one week it would have been fine but seeing as I stayed for 3 it was awful. What's worse is that the non high school section of PAA was staying in these amazing apartments but because i was literally one year younger I couldn't get a room there. I would definitely have preferred to have access to at least a mini fridge or microwave because I ended up spending a lot of money on food. Even though I wasn't too happy with that it was SO worth it and I am so so happy with all of the experience it gave me.

Overall it was a wonderful experience! I got to see great shows and learn from professionals working in the West End. The only thing I wish was better would be the organization and communication via emails and social media.
Performing Arts Abroad high school musical theater training program

Performing Arts Abroad allowed me to connect with classes taught by musical theater professionals in London through the West End On Demand Program. These classes themselves were illuminating, inspiring, and informative, and allowed me to learn from some of the best stage actors around and grow as a performer from the experience. However, interactions with Performing Arts Abroad staff themselves were often discouraging and frustrating, as I received conflicting dates and misinformation about the program and pre-departure material, and a massive lack of support from program staff who accompanied us in London.
