The Performing Arts Department provides students with the knowledge and practical experience that is vital to their development in a performance art. Working with teachers who are trained professionals, our students acquire the aesthetic, expressive, and technical skills that allow them to feel comfortable and confident in front of an audience. The department is organized into three programs: Theatre, Music, and Dance. While our offerings are diverse, they all teach students how to experiment, evolve and communicate in ways that are an inherent part of the creative process.
