On behalf of the Performing Arts team, welcome back to what we are planning to be a year full of opportunities to participate, try out, and express yourself through the performing arts, whether that be music, drama or dance; all of these disciplines naturally lead to showcasing our students’ talents and achievements and I am excited to be the coordinator for this programme, after having led the music department for ten years.
Our first goal is to make art together and a large
variety of opportunities are available for our students: from banging out some
groovy rhythms in the percussion ensemble to back-flips and moon-walks in the
dance workshops! We are planning for a busy first few months with two drama
presentations, a number of informal concerts culminating in the Christmas shows
at the Schaubühne Lindenfels, a wonderful performance space which has become
our traditional Christmas venue over a number of years now. After the new year,
our highlight will be showcasing all of the performing arts’ disciplines
together to celebrate the 30th
anniversary of the school.
This term, there is a diverse range of enrichment
activities on offer, which are all-inclusive and tailored to the abilities of
our students. Please ask me or Miss Flanagan if you would like to know more
about the offers below.
In addition to these group activities, we offer a
wide variety of instrumental lessons which are taught by hand-picked
professionals after school and conveniently take place in our school building.
If you are interested, please contact me directly.
Stories of performing arts’ learning will be
available to you on the Observer in the coming months.
Get involved! Providing students opportunities to
perform, giving them moments to shine, sharing the experience with others and
gaining self-esteem when preparing for a show which they will cherish and
remember for a long time is our passion.
