The Performing Arts department offers its students the opportunity to develop their skills as performing artists by building confidence and creativity and working collaboratively. Students will engage actively in the creative process, transforming ideas into action and following their curiosity and desire to learn. They will learn to apply research and theory to inform and give meaning to their work. Students will work both individually and collaboratively as part of an ensemble. To this end, the High School Performing Arts teachers continue ISB’s commitment to the following school-wide long term learning goals:
- Students will independently create and perform works in selected mediums to express ideas and/or to evoke mood and emotion with intent.
- Students will apply their understanding to appreciate the techniques, meaning, contexts and impact of the arts.
- Students will contribute to a collaborative process that models common intent, respect and adaptability to create and/or perform works.
