Next Level Aesthetics

 Innate to the experience of performance is the creation of aesthetics.  As such, those involved with performance often develop a passionate interest in aesthetics beyond just their artistry, including strong interests in their physical aesthetics.  This club is formed to allow such students a community of rational thought and engagement with concepts of physique aesthetics, including social aspects, fitness concepts  and even the philosophy of the pursuit.  The club will  work together to run workshops, discussions and presentations open to all students on these issues in the spirit of responsible engagement with these topics.
