Performing Arts Council
The arts are a vibrant and integral part of the University of Pennsylvania's culture, and The Performing Arts Council (PAC) offers you the opportunity to participate in more than 40 different student-run performance organizations. From dance to spoken word, jazz to stand-up comedy, theatre, a cappella and more. Student Performing Arts is one of the most diverse and exciting communities at Penn. With more than 60 performances a year, Penn is the perfect place to discover or fine tune your writing, directing, design, choreography, technical and of course, performance skills!
The Performing Arts Council (PAC) is organized into four subcommittees: Dance, Theatre, A Cappella, and Singers Musicians and Comedians (which also includes spoken word). PAC and its advisory office, University Life Arts Initiatives, offer training workshops and master classes throughout the year, alumni programs, career training, a summer theatre internship scholarship, as well as resources on the performing arts in Philadelphia.
