Classes Start: September


The Stage Lighting & Video program explores the artistry of lighting and video design and operation, for a wide variety of live applications, such as concerts, theater productions, broadcast, trade shows, theme parks, cruise ships, resorts, corporate events, product launches and award ceremonies.
