Arts in Education

Manzil’s Arts-in-Education program encourages the power of creativity and self expression through music, dance, theater, arts & craft and filmmaking groups. The groups, led by confident young Manzillions who live and breath these arts, nurture the further development of confidence skills and sense of community while students inspire one another and share their passionate interests. Music, in particular, has taken on a life of its own at Manzil. Visit us in the evenings, and there’s a good chance you’ll be invited to sit in on, and participate in, an exciting jam.

Manzil offers regular classes in dance, painting, theatre and music, and students are encouraged to initiate classes of their own, whether taking on the role of teacher or learner. In addition, Manzil fosters the opportunities for youth to express themselves outside of the classroom (however informal that classroom may even be). Music, in particular, has taken on a life of its own at Manzil. Visit us in the evenings, and there’s a good chance you’ll be invited to sit in on, and participate in, a exciting jam session. Our students draw their influences from both east and west. Many of them had never played an instrument before arriving at Manzil. Out of this group of students, two bands have emerged.
