When she was 4 years old, our founder Milica Paranosic discovered interdisciplinary creation and performance in Belgrade, then Yugoslavia.
She emigrated to New York in 1995 to begin a life as an interdisciplinary artist, composer, producer and educator.
Today, she embraces the opportunity to teach emerging artists the tools she learned to be useful in enjoying a life as a successful, fulfilled artist and citizen.

As children, we all create art. We sing and dance together, we build sand castles, we make up stories and draw landscapes on the walls of our rooms. Then somehow, life teaches us to become ‘serious,' get a ‘real’ profession, and stop ‘playing around;' in other words, to break the links to our inner artists.
At Paracademia, we keep those links alive, and awake them if they fall asleep.
Paracademia is committed to nurturing and revitalizing our artistic predispositions through community efforts and collaborative productions, performances and education.
We particularly support immigrants, women, and youth by providing education, performance and professional opportunities.
Get excited, because classes are back in session! Every Wednesday from 5pm-7pm, join us for classes on music theory, composition, and film scoring. Open to all skill levels, and drop-ins are welcome - email firstname.lastname@example.org for rates. See you there!
