Performance and Production ( ATS 321 )

The AME School of Production with Dance, Acting, and Music Specialties is a third-level University of the Nations course which is run at YWAM Rosario, Argentina by their art ministry, AME Company (Artists in their Maximum Expression). With a central focus on the professional development of the artist’s technique and character, the school offers students training in one of three different specialties: dance, acting, or music. Students enrolled in the AME School may choose only one area to study in. Each specialty covers separate curriculums designed to prepare, train, and develop professional Christian artists who are called to reach and transform this sphere of society. Parallel to the technique studies, all students of the AME will receive teachings on biblical foundations of the arts such as character of the artist, co-creating with God, and the Spiritual power of the Arts to name a few. We look for artists who want to leave it all on the floor; dancers, actors and musicians who are willing to do what it takes to be integral, professional, and transcendent in their gifts. The school lasts 6 months and is divided in three parts: the theoretical/technical phase (3 months), the research phase (1 month), and the production phase (2 months). During the theoretical/technical phase, students will take classes given by professional artists in and outside of YWAM. During the afternoons students will receive theoretical teachings on biblical foundations of the arts. After these first three months, the research phase begins. The school will travel to other cities with strong artistic movements to study the cultural riches of said places to acquire and apply them in the creative process. Students will attend different artistic classes, events, conferences, and artistic expositions in each place. Upon arrival students will enter the production phase where they will study different aspects of production such as wardrobe, makeup, set design, illumination and sound, script study, choreographic and musical composition etc. To finalize the school, students will work together with their peers and teachers to create a final piece. The production phase will be dedicated to theoretical classes, choreographic and musical composition, general and stage rehearsals, and wardrobe. The school will end with a two-week tour of the final production performed in important theaters around the city.
