      Career & Job Prospects in India and Abroad:

      After graduation, there are schools, dance companies, drama schools, music gurus or academies that search for talented graduates. The graduates can start on their own as well by opening their own academies as well.

      In an artist’s life, there are no “fixed targets” that one has to achieve every month or quarter. The “scope” of improvement and “career growth” continues until the last breath. There is a sense of satisfaction in an artist’s life that can never be brought by any materialistic wealth but the sound of applause and good at the same time constructive criticism from the audience for whom he/she performs.

      So, if the life of an artist is your calling and you want to study Performing Arts then the time is now.

      Better be late than never!
