Be the Future of the Performing Arts
In keeping with the NAFA spirit of creativity, exploration and resilience, the Faculty of Performing Arts continues the strong legacy of our founders, constantly challenging and supporting our students and staff to reach new frontiers in our practice.
Through practice-led and industry-focused training in the performing arts at our three schools: the School of Dance, School of Music, and School of Theatre, you will leave our halls with unparalleled aptitude, attitude and performing experience to take centre-stage in the fast-evolving performing arts landscape.
We hold ourselves to some of the world’s highest performing arts standards, and maintain strong links with top arts organisations in Singapore and renowned arts institutions from overseas, particularly: the University of the Arts London, Royal College of Music in London, and the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing.
Led by a world-class faculty in state-of-the-art facilities, you will gain vast performing experience. Besides performing weekly at the Lee Foundation Theatre and Studio Theatre, you will also participate regularly in arts performances and festivals held in Singapore’s premier arts venues: Victoria Concert Hall, Singapore Conference Hall, Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre, and the Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, Singapore's national performing arts centre.
In a true marriage of Western and Asian sensibilities , our faculty is well-placed to impart the best of traditional and contemporary practices in all three disciplines of Dance, Music and Theatre, allowing you to develop a unique Southeast Asian perspective to your performance craft. So join our inclusive, innovative and multidisciplinary environment and let your talent shine.
"At NAFA, we're all about working together, orchestrating change, and celebrating diversity. We'll prepare you to succeed in the performing arts industry by honing your artistic and interdisciplinary skills, connecting the dots between different fields and cultures, and broadening your global outlook."
