Our Performing Arts program emphasizes the fundamental elements of stage presence and craft, lighting, costume design, as well as vocal and instrumental music. Our students' developing skills and interests are met with traditional and advanced classes offered by a team of instructors who not only teach, but also work professionally in their field. 

In addition to the opportunities provided academically, performing troupes visit throughout the academic year to expand students' exposure to a variety of arts.
Lower School:
Little Dragons (Ages 2 & 3)
Our Little Dragons express their thinking, theories, ideas and emotions through dramatic play, as well as other creative channels. As a component to the Reggio Emilia approach to learning, students regularly seek dramatic play to learn. In addition, students perform in annual winter and spring concerts.

Pre-kindergarten-Grade 5
Students participate in co-curricular activities such as the Fall Concert, Recorder Ensemble, and Advance Chorus. Elective club offerings include Bell Choir, Chorus, Band, and Orff Ensemble. In the final year of the Lower School, students perform in grade-wide musical production.

They are also encouraged to participate in the Middle School Musical, the Hershey Park Competition, Bach in Baltimore, and winter and spring concerts to gain confidence in their own personal abilities.
