The Bishop's School offers strong and diverse programs in dance, voice and instrumental instruction for upper and middle school, enriching the minds of our students and enhancing our entire community.
The performing arts department provides basic skills to all interested students and an advanced program for students with interest in college fine arts programs. Advanced programs, requiring an audition, are offered in dance, vocal music, theater performance and technical theater. Jazz music and chamber music ensembles allow instrumental players to be challenged throughout their upper school years at Bishop’s.
In middle school, students are given the skills necessary to best express themselves, whether be it on stage or behind the scenes. Students begin to learn the discipline necessary for successful theater performance, but the emphasis always is on the process. Students strongly interested in performance can supplement their class theater studies with participation in after school drama; students especially interested in technical theater can volunteer for a variety of tech crews on middle school performances.
