Performing Arts are presented as a serious academic enterprise within the total school curriculum.  Three areas of emphasis within the department are offered: Performance (bands, choirs, orchestras, and dance), Technical (piano, guitar, music production and dance), and Classroom (music theory).  All Performing Arts courses meet the fine arts graduation requirement. *Dance may be taken to fulfill fine arts or physical education requirements (must be declared in advance).
