The philosophy of the Performing Arts Department is to nurture creativity in girls and instill a passion for excellence in music, dance, and theatre. The vertical integration of each discipline empowers girls at every stage of development to achieve her personal artistic potential so that they have the skills to successfully pursue the arts in the collegiate or professional arena. The Performing Arts curriculum enables our students to build a life-long relationship with the arts.
Our primary role as arts educators is to empower personal artistry in our students. In turn, our students become a creative community who learn to respect each other’s personal uniqueness and their contribution to the artistic whole. As ensemble artists, they become an integral part of the legacy at Hathaway Brown and the community at large. We believe in the power of the arts to change a heart, connect a community, bring meaning to life, and be an agent of change.
