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, or our students, who live and breathe these arts, nurture the further development of confidence and a sense of community while students inspire one another and share their passions. 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 session!

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. Music, in particular, has taken on a life of its own at Manzil. Our music students draw their influences from both East and West, fusing traditional Hindi music with contemporary Western genres. Many of these young learners had never played an instrument before arriving at Manzil, but have emerged from our programs talented artists. Out of this group of students, two bands have formed.
