Performing Arts

Acting, singing, dancing, communicating, and playing a musical instrument are all at the heart of the performing arts at Villa Duchesne. Students are actively involved in doing these things, not just reading or talking about them. Students perform in music, theatre, and dance in the classroom and on the stage. If a student is interested in lighting, sound, construction, costumes, make-up, and stage management, there are ample opportunities to actually work on a production. Independent study courses are often created by the student and the teacher to meet specific needs -- advanced courses or courses not offered in the curriculum. Even if a student is simply a "lover" of the performing arts, there will be a place for her to continue and deepen her appreciation and interest.

I chose Villa Duchesne because it is an amazing school. Truly, Villa has done so much for me. I have become a better student, and the girls here are so friendly. And, whenever you’re stuck on something or need anything, my teachers will always be there. I LOVE VILLA!!!
