Advanced Performance is a multi-discipline course for upperclassmen. Students who take Advanced Performance are currently participating in Band, String, or Chorale Ensembles but also wish to continue their training in acting. This course allows a student to participate in their yearlong music ensemble and advance their theatre/musical theatre technique without adding an additional class to their schedules. This course is particularly helpful to those considering theatre/musical theatre as a future area of study. Students accepted into Advanced Performance will substitute this class for Band, Chorale, or Strings twice a week.
