Juilliard School is one of the best performing arts conservatories in the world and is located in New York City. Juilliard students study and perform music, drama and dance. Juilliard was founded in 1905 originally located at 5th Avenue and 12th street – back then it was called the Institute of Musical Art. Upon first opening the school enrolled about 500 students, and as its prestige grew it moved to Claremont Avenue in 1920, and then in 1969 to the Lincoln Center. Juilliard Graduate School merged with the Institute of Musical art in 1926 and was then named The Julliard School of Music run by William Schuman (the very first individual to win a Pulitzer Prize for music). Eventually the school branched out into drama and dance, and most recently, jazz.
