Hero Treatment

Students perform in a musical
The Thrill of Self-Expression

Student performers not only experience the thrill of creative self-expression, but they also develop discipline, teamwork, and problem-solving skills.

To sense the energy surrounding the Performing Arts at MBS, simply step inside Founders Hall. Along with music and dance studios, you'll find our main stage theater—a beautiful 630-seat professional-caliber facility. The building is alive with creative activity: student dancers, actors and musicians inspired by the setting and by a faculty of passionate professionals.

MBS students encounter a breadth of opportunities in the performing arts that is extraordinary. They take to the stage in spectacular musicals, explore the world of theater tech, and study instrumental or vocal music and varied forms of dance. They perform with the jazz band, the woodwind choir, or the strings ensemble. Whatever their choice, student artists not only experience the thrill of creative self-expression, but they also develop discipline, teamwork, and problem-solving skills.

Performing Arts Courses and Programs

Performing Arts offers students the opportunity to explore a number of artistic disciplines. Students may choose to perform vocally, on instruments, through dance or in theater activities and projects. Media Studies is also offered as part of the program. The goals of all performing arts classes include developing proficiency in a particular area of the arts, increasing creativity and problem-solving skills through the arts, and helping students develop a lifelong relationship with the arts, both as practitioners and audience members.
