Performing Arts curriculum is designed to provide students with basic
and advanced skills in Music, Theatre and Dance aligned with the
California State Framework for the Visual and Performing Arts. The
course work emphasizes technique, performance skills, and develops
aesthetic and cultural values. In high school, students may take one
year of performing arts to fulfill the “f” requirement for UC/CSU, as
part of a career pathway, or for personal enjoyment.
