What Will You Gain?
The PAC is dedicated to helping you learn about yourself through the arts. You will have many performance opportunities and have the privilege of hearing great performances by both your classmates and guest artists. Throughout the year, you will gain more knowledge and understanding of your art form as well as others.
What to Expect
An Average Month
Every month the Performing Arts Club will meet four times. The first meeting is a student-led studio class where students have the opportunity to practice performing a piece they are working on. During the second meeting a guest artist will talk with the students about an aspect of the performing arts. The third meeting is another student led studio class. The final meeting is a performance somewhere in the community. Performance venues can include: retirement communities, coffee shops, local restaurants, and school sport games. At the end of the year, the students who performed the most will be invited to perform in the school's auditorium where proceeds will go towards the school district's fine arts department.
Become a Leader
Studio Class Leader
Two seniors hold this position and they are elected at the end of their junior year. They help run studio class and engage others. They make sure that everyone is getting an appropriate amount of time in studio class to practice performing.
Two juniors hold this position and they are elected at the end of their sophomore year. They arrive at the performance venue early to make sure everything is setup for the performance. They keep the performance running smoothly.
Awards are given to students based on how many times they have performed. They are handed out at The Finale Performance. PAC performances and any competitions count as a performance, including but not limited to NYSSMA and YoungArts!
