Performing Arts

Band

In Concert Band, students learn how to read music and play a band instrument. Students learn how to care for their instrument and rehearse in a group. Additionally, students study the elements of music through varied exercises, exploring musical composition, writing, arranging, and performing. Experienced students are mixed with beginners resulting in collaborative learning.

Chorus

Chorus is a well-rounded musical experience where students learn about vocal technique, stage presence, music history, terminology, music notation, and careers in music. Students perform in two major concerts each year, assemblies and a national music festival in the spring. One of the major goals of chorus is to encourage each student's strengths and talents. Technology activities include recording original songs on the computer, learning musical skills with computer-based programs and creating musical slide shows. Our goal is to see that chorus members experience the joy of singing and become musically and culturally literate as well.

Dance

Students will experience the joy of movement through different dance forms such as African, ballet, jazz, modern, etc. They will explore the history of dance and learn choreography. They will also have the opportunity to explore many kinds of dance expressions through field trips to dance performances, concerts, and musicals.
