This year the Rothberg International School has begun promoting programs to students that offer a focus in various arts programs. The goal of these programs is to attract a range of students who are following an arts-based track of study at their home university to the Hebrew University so that they too can have the amazing opportunity of learning and living abroad in Israel.
Dance Jerusalem is a unique program initiated jointly by Rothberg and the Jeruslaem Academy of Music and Dance (JAMD). This program combines artistic training in dance skills and technique with academic exposure to Israel’s challenging social, historical and cultural environment. Dance Jerusalem offers university-level artistic and technical training in the disciplines of Classical Ballet, Contemporary Dance Choreography, Repertoire and Improvisation.
Like Dance Jerusalem, Jerusalem Sounds is offered in conjunction with the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance. Studies include a full music program consisting of individual instruction, performance in small and large ensembles and classes in Jewish and Israeli music. Additionally, students get to choose from the wide range of courses at the Rothberg International School.
Art Jerusalem, which begins this coming fall, is a partnership between Rothberg and the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design. This program combines artisitic training with courses at Rothberg. Studies include a wide variety of art courses in such areas as painting, sculpture, drawing and screen printing as well as choosing from a broad selection of university courses in Israel and Middle Eastern studies, religion, behavioral sciences, environment studies and hebrew language.
