Essential to the development of the whole student, frequent participation in performing arts enriches students' personal expression, develops creative thinking, and expands collaboration. As they grow, students learn the importance of the structure, form, dialogue, and performance techniques that bring theater to life.

The dramatic arts are a central, integrated aspect of each student's experience at Nueva, deepening the study of humanities and bringing meaning to history. From Greek tragedies to Shakespeare to original plays penned by classes, students learn how the performing arts have mirrored the development of culture and society around the world, and how they have directly affected historical events.

PerfArt GuysDolls Embed300pxDrama-related opportunities abound, such as working with professional actors, choreographers, set designers, costumers, and other drama professionals. Students learn to be informed theatergoers as they attend productions locally and in New York City, Washington, DC, and Ashland, Oregon. These opportunities arise as integrated experiences of Nueva's core curricula, through elective opportunities, or both.

Through classroom integration and performing arts electives, students have frequent, high-quality opportunities to go as deeply into the dramatic arts as their passion dictates.
