The Performing Arts faculty is dedicated to offering students every opportunity to develop their abilities and potential. The performing arts play an important role in the social, cultural, aesthetic and spiritual lives of people. At an individual level, music, dance and drama are mediums of personal expression. They enable the sharing of ideas, feelings and experiences.
Our goal is to provide every opportunity to allow students to explore and foster their own talent and to express themselves in a caring environment where their effort and input are highly valued.
