Visual & Performing Arts Programs

 

MORE THAN POETRY

The visual and performing arts component of our after school program provides multiple opportunities for students to learn a diversity of skills through active learning.

Through spoken word, dance, music, media arts (photography, videography, etc), theatre, and visual arts, students learn a wide range of critical thinking, problem solving, and reasoning skills.

 

DANCE FUSION

Students will learn the basics of ballet, hip hop, tutting, jazz, tap, modern and shadow dancing, correct technique, fundamentals and a familiarization of dance vocabulary. They will make gains within physical education through increased flexibility and endurance. , engage with a local artist mentor through stability, encouragement and professionalism, and engage with the community by ending the session with a public performance. Students will also make the connection between dance and worship through the use of Christian music and the use of devotions.
