Institute Guest Speakers 

Tailored for Usdan's high school students, Usdan Leadership Institute for the Arts is designed to cultivate thoughtful, independent young artists, and the next generation of leaders in the arts.  In addition to rigorous investment in their personal practices, the Institute invites Guest Speakers in to engage with the Institute students on professional development and in-depth aspects of their craft.
