Schedule for cultural activities in the afternoon

Cultural experiences will be held in small groups so that students can individualize their experience. The small groups will enable students to choose the cultural activity in which they are most interested, while allowing them focused collaboration with their instructor as well as their peers. Choices will include Tai-Chi, music, drama, cuisine, tea, and handcrafts. Once accepted to the program, students will choose their preferred cultural activity via a form in their information package.

On Fridays there will be a Performance Showcase for the students to demonstrate their abilities.
