Theatre & Dance
Lower School Drama
Our program is dedicated to providing students with a dynamic and fun introduction into the world of theatre. Imaginative play is an important role in the development of a child. Through the use of creative dramatics the students will begin to develop skills in communication, team work and problem solving. As students advance from basic focus and physical awareness games in Kindergarten to performing in the Spring Musical production in grades 2 through 5, they grow in confidence and their understanding of the art of theatre.
Middle School Theatre Arts
We offer 6th, 7th, and 8th grade the opportunities to experience different styles, genres, and elements of theatre. The students will be tasked with exploring their worlds and the world at large, using theatre and musical theatre as a catalyst for expression and exploration. Students may join the Jr.Company where they have opportunities to be involved in individual projects, school productions and participate at the Florida District and State Thespian Competitions. Jr. Company meets Thursdays after school 3:00 – 5:00pm.
