The Cultural Arts program exposes students to a variety of performing arts experiences by sending professional artists into the classrooms for hands-on workshops and performances. Each grade focuses on a different arts discipline (including dance, acting, music, storytelling and puppetry) that typically complements the academic curriculum. Through these Cultural Arts experiences, students expand their appreciation as engaged audience members and build their skills as performers.
