Performing Arts

The main skills the students leave us with, and what we base our Performing Arts curriculum on, are:


  • Communication: The ability to perform a complex character with voice, gesture & physicality
  • Trust: To take direction without personality getting in the way, and take risks.
  • Teamwork: To work with a number of different cast members, to lead and be led.
  • Maturity: To work independently on a given project while understanding self.
  • Expression (Creativity): To create a piece of complex drama from any stating point
  • Evaluation: To be critically self and peer evaluative and be able to take professional criticism

Please see our Performing Arts News section and check back frequently for updates.
