Robin G Posted November 6, 2005 Report Share Posted November 6, 2005 This is a dance program which is modern based but the Herberger College of Fine Arts is so impressive it's worth a few words. Fine ballet classes are offered and Ballet Arizona is very nearby. Pointe classes are encouraged at Ballet Az.,and the school is looking to expand their ballet. Although my daughter was concerned about such a modern based program she came away smitten.The faculty is exciting and excited about their program. There's lots of performance opportunity, lots of arts and community involvement. The whole Fine Arts area of buildings (the music,art museum,theater) were eye-candy unbelievable. I was surprised at how beautiful the campus is-not what I expected. It's a huge school but layed out so buildings are close together. Very walkable. Big green trees and the tallest palms and cactus.I had heard of the reputation as a party school (no wonder-it's too gorgeous here)but found the students bright and hard working.The town of Tempe is a wonderful place to live,Phoenix is growing(artswise),galleries galore in very nearby Scottsdale. Not a bad place to spend several years! Quote Link to comment
