Arts Events and Stage Productions


Performing Arts

Students at the American College have a variety of opportunities to participate in the performing arts. There are several stage productions every year, including an English-language Musical Performance and a Bulgarian-language Drama. In addition, there are opportunities for students to showcase their talents at our annual winter Christmas Concert, springtime Arts Fest, and Classical Music Concert.

In 2007, ACS expanded its Arts Program, connecting professional directors, musicians, conductors, and dance coaches to students at the College. This initiative not only enhanced the opportunity for student involvement, but it also created a unique partnership between ACS and professionals within the Bulgarian arts community.    

Lastly, our mentors, together with our students, also work in truly diverse groups such as our Balkan Dance Ensemble (which also includes parents and teachers as a part of the regularly occurring practices), the ACS Choir, and in more recent years there have been many student rock bands.
