Students develop their creativity, strength, alignment and performance skills as they learn Modern Dance, Ballet, Composition Technology and Principles of Dance. Pedagogy is blended to help students develop their own unique voice as creators with competitive skills to succeed in the real world.
Students learn acting technique, scene study, voice and diction, movement, singing, theatre history, audition preparation, digital (photo & video) resume building, script analysis, directing, lighting design, and stagecraft in addition to exploring performance and acting techniques for full stage classical, modern, and musical theatre productions as well as smaller studio settings.
Drawing, Painting & Digital Design
Students develop their artistic skills as they progress through classroom assignments such as still life drawing, perspective drawing, portraiture, figure drawing, and abstract compositions using a variety of drawing, painting, and digital design media. We work with our students to help them develop their portfolios and secure scholarships for college.
Video & Photography
Students develop self-confidence in their creative, critical thinking and expressive process of the student as they build valuable artistic, literacy and technical skills in photography and video production with the added benefit of team building skills for ongoing meaning and application in college and the real world work place. Students participate in the planning, production and presentation of multi-media projects for actual clients, which include individuals and organizations in and out of school.
