Yes, at Collège du Léman our Performing Arts programme is an important part of our curriculum, as our students start engaging in drama, music and dance from an early age. Our collaboration with Juilliard gives our students a unique opportunity to benefit from their expertise and resources, like the Dancer’s Toolbox, an original resource designed for teaching dance and understanding a dancer’s needs. Our collaboration provides our students with a first-class learning experience and our teachers with an abundance of resources.
From an early age, students are encouraged to play an instrument and music classes are compulsory. In Primary School, students will learn to play the violin and in Middle School students are introduced to the keyboard. Students who are passionate and enthusiastic are given the opportunity to continue to study music in High School.
Our drama curriculum uses core works from different cultures and periods in history to provide students with a solid foundation. Drama is a mandatory subject until High School and is offered until graduation.
Our dance curriculum has a variety of options ranging from classical and ballet to more modern styles such as hip-hop.
Our extra-curricular activities programme offers students the opportunity to continue to follow their passion outside of the classroom with activities like drama and classical dance, string, violin and keyboard ensembles, choir and our very own rock band. Every year we have a couple of shows where students can present what they have worked on to their parents and peers.
