2019 K-Pop Academy DC

K-Pop Academy DC is back! Now in its fourth year, this special four-week training and cultural exploration program lets fans live the excitement of the Korean pop culture phenomenon. Participants work with professional voice and dance trainers from Korea to learn the moves and sounds of the worldwide K-Pop music phenomenon with fellow fans, while also experiencing the work ethic, sense of community, and creative energy that makes the industry so vibrant.

This year for the first time, K-Pop Academy DC will allow participants to experience traditional Korean cultural workshops, introducing important context and cultural roots to the main focus on modern performance arts. 

K-Pop Academy has grown over the years into a global program hosted at Korean Cultural Centers around the world. It offers fans of all nationalities the chance to experience the intensity, richness, and camaraderie of Korean pop culture firsthand. Joining the K-Pop Academy doesn’t require special dance, vocal, or other experience—just a passion to learn!
