The Performing Arts program includes drama, vocal, and music. Classes address the a range of individual differences, talents, and interests students and provide enrichment to the total program. The development of unique intellectual, physical, social and emotional response through both verbal and nonverbal communication is reflected in the classes.
Drama includes acting techniques which involves voice, body movement, character analysis, interpretation, stage arrangement with an emphasis in play writing. Instruction in theater history from its roots to the contemporary theater will also be covered.
Music is the ultimate team sport. The difference is, there is no bench to fill in for a missing musician. We rely on everyone being there for blend and balance of sound and visual excellence. We teach more than notes on a page or dots on the field. Students should leave this program with life skills like collaboration, camaraderie, problem-solving and work ethic.
