Performing Arts

The Performing Arts faculty has designed programs and experiences to encourage participation by all students who are interested. Students are taught skills and approaches that assist them to overcome their uncertainties and boost their confidence and abilities. Those who possess a unique dramatic or musical talent are given the careful direction and the exciting performance opportunities they seek.

In Grade 8 students take an introduction to drama class as part of the Explorations in the Arts program. Beginning in Grade 9, students are offered drama classes within their arts electives. Subsequent drama classes are offered in the senior years as Acting 11 and Acting 12; in this class, students rehearse and produce the school’s major production.
