Georgetown University

Washington, DC

US Performing Arts will be adhering to all local regulations and following all national, county, city, and campus guidelines for in-person camps and workshops for Summer 2021. We will have strict guidelines and protocols in place for our staff and students in cooperation with each of our university residencies. We will be running our programs at a reduced capacity and accepting students on a first-come, first serve basis. We will need to continue to be nimble and pivot as necessary. If additional capacity limits are required come summer, we will honor applications in their order of submission. If it becomes necessary to move to small interactive virtual workshops those students who have reserved space in our residential and/or commuter programs will receive the first opportunity to move their registration to a virtual experience in the order of their submission.   Please review our “No Risk Enrollment Policy” for more information.

Workshops


Location Overview


Experience an exciting summer in Washington, D.C. with US Performing Arts, as we celebrate our twelfth year in the nation’s capital. Our DC programs are taught by industry professionals with extensive resumes.

All of our Georgetown programs include a VIP backstage tour of the Kennedy Center.

Founded in 1789, Georgetown is the nation’s oldest Catholic and Jesuit university. Georgetown provides a vibrant arts community with many art, dance, and theatre shows. Steps away from Georgetown’s main drag, you’ll find trendy restaurants and designer shops amidst historic and picturesque gardens, homes, and museums. Nearby neighborhood Foggy Bottom, rich in historical and cultural attractions, is home to the Lisner Auditorium, Watergate Hotel, and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Ranked 2nd in Top College Theater Programs Outside of New York, Georgetown offers a major in Theater and Performance Studies. Georgetown students pursuing Theater Studies have participated in performances at the White House, concert tours in Italy and Turkey and served as U.S. Delegates at the UNESCO World Theater Conference.
