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.
