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.

"Villa Duchesne is special because, unlike many other schools, Villa is constantly working to make changes that would best benefit the students. Also, not only does Villa support their students in participating in community service, but they also go above and beyond to support you to make that possible. They provide a safe and friendly environment for everyone, and it is a wonderful place to attend school."
