Discover BIMA

June 23-30, 2013

New for Summer 2013, we are offering one-week BIMA experience called Discover BIMA. Enjoy the same high quality arts instruction and dynamic, pluralistic community that are the hallmarks of BIMA - but in a more condensed weeklong format!

Choose one of six majors:

  • Dance
  • Choral Music
  • Musical Theater
  • Songwriting
  • Visual Arts
  • Creative Writing

In your major, you will receive one-on-one instruction from passionate performers and artists who are masters at their disciplines—and who are deeply committed to your artistic growth. You will expand your repertoire and hone your skills with the benefit of their expert guidance. There will be time to explore your own creative voice and create original works, both as an individual and in collaboration with other participants.

You will also participate in a Creative Beit Midrash. Together with the participants from Discover Genesis, you will explore Jewish sources and develop creative interpretations, in the media of your choice. These interpretations will contribute richness and texture to our community Shabbat celebration.

Tuition: $1950 (financial aid is available)

Application Requirements:

A complete application to Discover BIMA consists of:

  • Three online forms (Participant Application, Participant Information, and Artistic Background)
  • One essay
  • Art instructor reference (in the arts discipline you wish to study at BIMA)
  • Arts sample
  • $40 application fee

All application materials are available through our online system.

 This form will prompt you to create a login for our online application system using a parent email address. Parents and the Discover BIMA applicant will need to use this login information to complete the application - please choose a password that you both can remember. Please note, that on page five of the online form you will be asked for payment information - this refers to the method that you are choosing to pay the $40 application fee.

Note: If you are applying for the four week session of BIMA, you do NOT need to submit separate application materials for Discover BIMA. Simply indicate on your application that you are applying for both programs.
