Active Learning in a Dynamic environment

In every division of the school, performing arts classes engage students in active learning that purposely engages their creativity and problem-solving skills. Whether they are studying music, movement and dance, or theatre, students experience these disciplines in a dynamic environment where knowledge inspires continued commitment to one’s creative abilities.  Given the ensemble nature of the performing arts, students naturally find themselves in circumstances that cultivate collaborative problem solving, critical thinking, and an understanding of how parts make up the whole. These habits will serve them well no matter what they pursue after graduation.
