1.    What is ACOPIA School?

 

ACOPIA School is a dance/vocal academy run under the ACOPIA Entertainment division. This division, specialized in K-POP activities, is also hosting one-week K-POP Training Camps 5 times a year and provides intensive lessons for those who wish to take Auditions in famous Entertainment companies.

 

 

At ACOPIA School, you will learn about Korean culture, have Korean lessons, singing lessons, dancing lessons and Korean cooking lessons. It will also be an opportunity to meet with other international students who share the same passion for Korea as you.
