The Sierra Canyon Performing Arts Department is central to the School’s objective to educate the whole person. Students develop the skills and the discipline to be intuitive, imaginative creators and observers in all areas of their lives. The teachers of the arts are also practicing artists; they inspire and challenge their students to participate in the creative process.
Performing Arts events are also an integral part of the Sierra Canyon community. Concerts, plays and performances fill the school calendar and celebrate artistic accomplishments. Introductory Performing Arts courses are required, but many students go beyond the basic requirements. Some students are involved in many facets of the arts, while others specialize as dancers, musicians, or actors.
Each school year, the Performing Arts Department presents four professional quality and thematically advanced productions. Another annual celebration of the Performing Arts Department is an event called “One Night Only.” This special evening is a culmination of Middle and Upper School students’ yearlong work in the Vocal, Instrumental, and Dance programs.
