• It’s an exciting time at Mannes.

    We have joined the Jazz and Drama schools downtown in Arnhold Hall (55 West 13th Street) as part of the College of Performing Arts at The New School. In our new home, students enjoy the same intimate environment and exceptional education Mannes has always offered and also benefit from the following:

    • Brand-new facilities: Students learn in custom-built, state-of-the-art classrooms and performance and practice spaces.
    • Enhanced opportunities for collaboration: This move has brought Mannes students into close proximity with other New School colleges. This means more collaboration than ever between our students. Events like the recent COPA production of Cabaret, featuring excellent performances from Mannes students alongside students from the School of Drama, are taking place more and more often.
    • Greenwich Village: Our downtown location is one of the most artistically vibrant places in which to study anywhere. We encourage students to explore and take advantage of everything this creative, inspiring neighborhood has to offer.

    In addition, The New School’s neighbors in the Village now have access to free and affordable performances and world-class classical music preparatory training. Join us for one of our concerts or other public programs offered at Mannes.
