Performing Arts

Music and theatre are important parts of every Indian Creek student’s education. From the smallest students in the Early Childhood program to our oldest students who are preparing to move out into the world, each child has the opportunity to explore and develop their artistic expression through singing, instrumental music, dance and theater. Reader’s theater, vocal and instrumental concerts, and talent shows provide appropriate and exciting “stage time” for our youngest students, as an important part of the Indian Creek curriculum. Fifth grade Shakespeare performances enhance the performing arts experience to prepare students for the grand production of our annual Middle School musical. The Upper School years bring opportunities to participate in a fall play, spring musical, a wide variety of concerts and competitions, as well as a student-produced children’s show.
