At ISB, the Performing Arts department fosters an understanding of the world by facilitating a life-long love of the arts. Each discipline of the Performing Arts engages the intellectual, physical and emotional aspects of a child to promote creativity, self-expression, collaboration, multicultural awareness, interdisciplinary study and critical thinking.
As a Performing Arts department, we value:
- global perspectives
- critical thinking
We believe that students learn the Performing Arts best when they:
- are motivated, challenged, and supported by a joyful and safe learning environment
- take responsibility for their own learning and develop high expectations together
- develop self-awareness, empathy and an understanding of the world through a diverse range of experiences in the arts
When developing our Theater curriculum, standards are based on the National Arts Standards.
