Why 2021 is the perfect time to study online?

Now more than ever, being online is a central part of our everyday lives. As 2020 comes to an end, now is the perfect time to focus on your career aspirations and plan how you will achieve your goals in the New Year and beyond.

Distance learning has many benefits and is one of the best ways you can accelerate your professional and artistic development. At NIPAI programs you can choose studying fully on distance or joining a blended learning program!

Here we take a look at some of the key reasons to embark on a program of online study in 2021.

Hands-On Learning

NIPAI philosophy is learning by doing. From day one, students start to create their own original works of art, completing studies with their masterstroke - Diploma Performance. In the end of NIPAI Certificate programs students can have a ready-to-go performance production project, at the the end of Diploma programs, students release this performance production at the theatre under the NIPAI's mentorship as their final exam!

In the programs offered by NIPAI, students receive hands-on immersive education from our prestigious faculty through a combination of in-class sessions, distant learning, workshops, webinars, and student-guided projects.

New International Performing Arts Institute teaches concrete skills in Directing, Teaching and Management that are actually applied, can and should be applied in every day of professional work!

Flexible Studies

As our students are busy with their professional lives and need flexibility, we offer a variable study duration: from 18-months diploma program to 3-days workshop!

Students can apply for the Theatre Directing Course at any time during the year and can start the program with either the practical session or distant tasks and online seminars.

At the Blended Learning programs students complete 6 obligatory modules: 4 inClass and 2 distance.

InClass sessions are designed as one-week residential labs, including intensive practical training and discussions.

Distant learning is provided through an online platform and can be attended from around the world.

Study Project (Diploma Performance) is carried out within a student's theatre organization or theatre group.

NIPAI Community

Another wonderful aspect of NIPAI programs is the multiculturality of our students. The NIPAI draws an incredibly diverse, international groups of students who share a passion for telling, creating and sharing stories. Recent programs included students from the USA, Canada, France, Italy, UK, Switzerland, Portugal, Spain, Australia, Singapore, Mexico, Brazil, India, Israel, Russia, Japan, and China. Working on student projects alongside peers from different countries and cultures is excellent training for the innovative, new, multidimensional approach to performance making, and also offers our students personal opportunities to learn more about new stories and cultures.

The combination of non-stop collaborative work, blended education, diverse cultures and experiences, and a shared passion for performing arts and theater, make our programs enriching experiences. Students often say that the NIPAI's programs, courses and workshops are the most exciting, full of discoveries and rewarding creative experience they have ever had.

Fully Distance Education

No matter where you are, you will have an access to the same quality education content as in the blended-learning programs studying theatre and movement directing from the comfort of your own home!

Long-term distance programs:

Distant learning offers incredible flexibility with the same qualification as you would receive from the blended learning diploma or certificate course at NIPAI, and still emphasizing on a practical investigation of each topic.

Short-terms distance programs:

At NIPAI, students of the short online courses experience a transformative journey as they explore particular stages of theatre director's in preparation for production, and learn how to convert their ideas into reality from the very first day of the course.

These 3-months programs will allow you to master a particular aspect of work in theatre directing which will enrich your toolkit and will help you to become a better specialist! Each course offers a creative and flexible learning environment where you will, from the comfort of home, practically explore interested you topics!

2020 has been a catalyst for change for many, causing us to re-evaluate what is important and what we want to achieve in our professional artistic lives.
