Exploring Performing Arts Colleges similar to Juilliard?

I'm super into performing arts and aiming for a school with a strong drama/music program. Obviously, Juilliard is the dream, but I gotta be real with my backup options. What are some other colleges like Juilliard that offer top-notch performing arts education?

It's fantastic that you're passionate about the performing arts! My child also had their sights set on conservatory schools, and while Juilliard is indeed a beacon for the performing arts, there are several other institutions with strong programs you might consider.

For drama specifically, look into Tisch School of the Arts at NYU—it's a vibrant community in the heart of New York City. If you're keen on both drama and music, check out the Conservatory of Music and Dance at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. The USC Thornton School of Music and the University of Michigan's School of Music, Theatre & Dance are also remarkable for their rigorous training and industry connections.

On the liberal arts side, Oberlin College and Bard College offer excellent music programs with a side of the liberal arts feel. Remember to consider not only the program strength but also the overall campus atmosphere and location, as they can really impact your college experience. Keep reaching for the stars; I'm sure you’ll find the right fit!
