Visiting Artists at Branson

At Branson, our arts faculty also bring the arts world to you. Throughout each year, we invite professional guest artists and alumni artists to campus (or, during Covid, on Zoom) to share their expertise with Branson students. Some visits last a few hours; others are deeper collaborations over several weeks. Each one offers students a chance to broaden your perspective, deepen your learning, and practice new skills. 

“Being able to learn and work with an accomplished member of the dance community was such an honor, and her connections to Branson made the experience all the more special.
