Our goal is to offer students every possible tool to enter the professional world of entertainment. Their dreams are our mission, therefore we provide professional training of excellence.

We take care of every detail, from the rigorous selection of the 25 teachers and their proven experience in showbiz, to the modern and friendly look of our large structure.

12 rehearsal rooms, recording studios, 200-seat auditorium, accommodation for non-resident students, restaurant / bistro, relax room with computer stations for homework and school research during breaks between lessons. Reception desk from 9:00 to 21:00. Team of 10 people working for production, organization and logistic.

We have an agreement of collaboration with the National Academy of Fine Arts in Rome to stimulate creative exchanges between our students of dance, musical, acting, music and their students of scenography and costume.

We are in contact with the major casting directors and show agencies and we have direct contacts with the major European dance and ballet companies, as well as being ourselves home of Roma City Ballet Company. Several times some of our studios are rent by theater and television productions and our students of ART VILLAGE have opportunities to meet with the big names of cinema, entertainment world and dance.

PERMANENT EXHIBITION GIANNI BONCOMPAGNI

A permanent exhibition of the works of the great master of Italian radio and television, Gianni Boncompagni, has been set up in the Art Village spaces. His great passion for painting has produced works of rare beauty and rich in movement and color. The paintings will remain on display inside the structure to be admired not only by the public, but above all by our students with the intention of being a vehicle of artistic inspiration.
