The Performing Arts inspire students to develop abstract thinking and become more culturally literate, while building self-esteem and communication skills. The department has developed a progressive program that provides students of all skill levels and interests with opportunities for individual and group expression through Music, Theatre and Dance.
Music is a universal language. All students at Nobles, regardless of musical background or skills, are encouraged to participate in choral or instrumental groups. Nobles firmly believes that a degree of musical literacy is an essential part of the educational experience.
Nobles Theatre helps students develop skills, regardless of previous experience. Everyone with thoughts and feelings possesses the power to create and communicate. Participation in this program will strengthen a student's imagination, sense of self, and ability to express emotion and thought through a variety of means. The Nobles Theatre Collective seeks to aid students develop into confident and creative individuals, while stressing the collaborative nature of the art form.
Dance class focuses on fitness for dancers, and the dance styles of jazz dance/ musical theater, modern dance, ballet and hip hop. Each class ends with developing creative movement that is incorporated into a choreography. This choreography is developed over nine weeks and presented for the school in Assembly at the end of the program.
Independent Dance is designed around the dance interests of students. Choosing a dance style or a number of styles, the students learn new moves and create choreography. Dance on film and video is also viewed to increase awareness about dance vocabulary.
