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.

"In computing class, we did a career project and we had to make a PowerPoint. We had to research all of this information. I knew I wanted to be a doctor that worked with infants and so I looked up Neonatology and I really liked it."
