Aspiring performers can choose from four great programs at Holland College School of Performing Arts, a partnership with Confederation Centre of the Arts. For those in the early stages of considering a career in the performing arts, we offer the one-year Performing Arts Foundation certificate program. Students who are ready to specialize will appreciate the training opportunity offered in the two-year diploma programs in contemporary Music Performance, Theatre Performance and Dance Performance. Small class size and dedicated faculty will help you discover your full potential, whichever program you choose.

The partnership between Holland College and Confederation Centre of the Arts means that students benefit from training in a stimulating professional arts centre environment, supported by the services of an accredited college. Confederation Centre is an active cultural centre delivering top-class musical theatre productions and ongoing concert series in three theatre spaces. Holland College is an innovative and internationally recognized post-secondary educational institute, emphasizing skills oriented training. Students in the School of Performing Arts enjoy hands-on learning, training and performing on the stages and in the studios of Confederation Centre and Holland College’s new performance hall, and learning from instructors who work in the sector.

Prince Edward Island has a rich tradition in the performing arts. From music to dance to theatre, the province has a lively cultural scene, with plenty of opportunity to interact with artists who make their living in the culture sector! The programs of the School of Performing Arts draw on the strengths of Confederation Centre of the Arts and Holland College to provide students with a strong foundation in their field, as well as in the business aspects of their chosen profession.
