The arts curriculum emphasizes four central ideas: developing creativity, communicating, understanding culture, and making connections. The arts at Holy Trinity - dance, drama, music, and the visual arts - play a valuable role in the education of all students. Through the arts, students develop their creativity and learn about their identity, develop self-awareness, self-confidence, and a sense of well-being. The arts nourish the imagination and develop a sense of beauty, while providing unique ways for students to gain insights into the world around them. Students communicate their insights while developing artistic skills and aesthetic judgment. All of the arts make connections among movement, space, texture, and environment and encourage the exploration of new modes of artistic expression.

Dance transforms images, ideas, and feelings into movement sequences. Learning in dance requires a balance of knowledge, skills, and attitudes, and embraces movement, creation, and performance. Appreciation of dance expands students’ awareness of the richness of various cultures around the world. The study and practice of composition provide students with the essential building blocks that support lifelong interest in, appreciation of, and curiosity about dance. (51)
