In the Performing Arts program students will be inspired as they engage in creative learning experiences in Drama and Music. They will also make important learning connections by bringing their core curriculum into the performing arts classroom and the performing arts curriculum into their home classroom.
In Drama, students will develop knowledge, skills and understanding by taking on roles and creating imagined situations shaped by the elements of drama. Students will participate in several different drama forms including improvisation, pantomime, storytelling, puppetry, and video. Students will also use their knowledge of drama concepts to improvise and write monologues, scenes and scripts.
In Music, students will develop knowledge, skills and understanding through actively making music; singing, playing instruments and moving in a creative environment based on the Orff-Schulwerk approach to teaching. Students will be introduced to many different styles of music from a variety of time periods and cultures. Students will also use their knowledge of musical concepts to improvise and organize sound into musical compositions.
