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.

"If you are having trouble in a subject, the teachers are always open to helping you and you can always go to their office and ask them for help and they’ll gladly help you. Then you understand it and on the test you’ll get it right."
