Performing Arts

The performing arts program at St. Andrew's seeks to foster an understanding and appreciation of dance, drama, and choral and orchestral music, while also encouraging students to discover and pursue interests in any or all of these art forms, and to develop personally as adventurous, expressive, and creative individuals.

Performing arts courses provide both formal training and instruction in the theoretical, historical and cultural background of each discipline. This intensive training and instruction, combined with close contact with established faculty artists who create and perform their own works with and for our community, allows the student grow in their own artistic understanding, creative capabilities, and free expression. This dynamic interaction allows our students to gain a strong sense of the arts as a means for investigating and celebrating the world in which they live.
