The Performing Arts Department encourages students to explore the world of artistic performance as a means of communication and expression. The program is designed to address the individual potential of the emerging artist within a collaborative ensemble united in vision. Students cultivate their passion for the creative and intellectual pursuit of artistry in areas including dance, drama, vocal and instrumental music, and stage technology. The faculty takes pride in mentoring individuals and conducting process-oriented curricula, with goals of instilling performance discipline and nurturing student exploration and discovery. As technique and skills develop, we challenge and celebrate each ensemble through many performance opportunities, including instrumental and choral concerts, dance productions, and theatrical performances in the middle and high school, both on campus and in the greater community. Through master classes and field trips, the program engages Los Angeles’ plentiful offerings to supplement an enriching and expansive experience.
