The Jerusalem post asked readers of the Jerusalem Post for their picks of the top performing arts institutions in the world.
The list is dominated by the US, where performing arts have long dominated the culture and it seems the US is the only country that performs in the top five, with the US Institute of the Arts (USIA) taking top honors.
It was revealed in the US’s 2018 census that the American Institute of Arts (AIA) had the highest number of performing arts students in the country with 1,539 students in 2018, a number that has steadily grown over the years.
The AIA also boasts the highest percentage of women in the profession.
The AIA has also become a national leader in the field of performing art education.
Its students have taught and performed in over 2,400 schools.
The organization also has a national center for the arts in the U.S., which hosts performances in its main campus.
