Performing Arts

The performing arts are a dynamic presence in our daily lives, enabling us to express our creativity while challenging our intellect. Through the arts, students have a unique means of expression that captures their passions and emotions and allows them to explore ideas, subject matter, and culture in delightfully different ways. Achievement in the arts cultivates essential skills, such as problem solving, creative thinking, effective planning, time management, teamwork, effective communication, and an understanding of technology.
