Performing Arts

 

The Performing Arts program encompasses movement and dance, music and drama. Each class from grades Prep to Six attends a weekly hour-long Performing Arts session. The students collaborate with others to explore and use costumes, puppets, props, the body, voice and musical instruments. Some of the activities the students experience include charades, handclapping games, body percussion, puppet plays, lip syncing, energizer songs, playing percussion instruments, musical statues, learning to play the ukulele, and drama games. They use elements of movement, music and drama to create and share performances that communicate experiences, ideas and feelings. The students are given many opportunities to perform both in their Performing Arts sessions and for school assemblies.
