    Overview

     

    The Performing Arts Program

    Aligned with the Arts, Media and Entertainment (AME) Standards and the National Core Arts Standards (NCAS) the Dance, Drama, and Music programs give students comprehensive, sequential training, Career Technology Education (CTE), and many performance/exhibition opportunities to develop their artistic potential to the fullest.  Students may also take Theatre Workshop classes.  Students with a special passion for the performing arts may join Skyline’s Performing Arts Pathway.  This rigorous training provided by a distinguished faculty of professional artists, industry specialists master classes, and guest artists prepares them for their Senior Capstone Research Project, admission to the college or university of their choice, or to enter their art field directly.

     

    Each school year, the performing arts season consists of 6 main stage productions including an inter-disciplinarian collaborative production in the spring, frequent off-campus public and privately booked performances, opportunities to compete, matinee performances for elementary and/or middle schools, and their Visual and Performing Arts Pathway peers. School performances are held in the 875-seat, Rawley T. Farnsworth Theater on our beautiful 45-acre campus in the Oakland hills.

     

    Skyline integrates its performing arts curriculum into project based learning that strives to develop student voice, highly skilled artists who are creative, passionate and contributing members to their craft and the world in which they live.  In addition to its academic classes and electives, honors, and AP classes are offered. The performing arts programs help our students to fulfill their dreams.
