Drama Club & Musical Theater (All Levels)
The Performing Arts program at Pace Brantley Preparatory is dedicated to helping our students showcase their talents and grow their confidence. With warm and positive encouragement our progressive curriculum allows students to develop their self- esteem, team building strategies, public speaking skills, social skills, acting skills, and musical talents.
Each year our outstanding Drama students put on an extraordinary two hour musical. Students audition for roles, and spend months rehearsing after school, before performing in front of a sold out audience.
Our program also offers High School Stagecraft classes. This is the perfect opportunity for students who prefer to shine off of the stage to showcase their artistic talents. The Stagecraft students create incredible scenic pieces that are used for the musical. Students also learn about a variety of professional theatre professions.
Our Middle and High School students take Drama courses where they learn about theatre terminology, theatre professions, acting skills, pantomime, and improvisational skills. Students develop their public speaking skills by performing in front of an audience. The program also helps to refine their social skills through the usage of theatre games and activities.
Our Elementary students take enriching Music classes. The Music curriculum involves learning to read music, playing the recorder and other introductory instruments, singing, choreography, and music appreciation.
Pace’s art program is designed to help students develop a lifelong appreciation of the arts and to see things more creatively. At all grade levels, students employ decision-making skills so that each student’s work is unique and personal to them. They learn appropriate art vocabulary while developing a solid foundation in art in terms of color, layout, perspective and balance.
Finished projects include both two-and three-dimensional works, and students use a variety of art mediums including: clay, paper mache, printmaking, charcoal/pastel drawing, collage and different methods of painting. Correlations are often made between the current project and works of famed artists to develop an appreciation of art history.
Positive classroom critiques are also a regular part of the art program to encourage analysis and self-evaluation. At the end of each project, student artwork is displayed, giving students pride and ownership in their work. The goal is to ensure student success, not only in art, but in life. By teaching students how to think creatively and understand the viewpoints of other creative thinkers, it helps them see the world through a new lens.
Big Thanks to Winter Park artist, Wendy Hawkins, for the extensive collection of art supplies she donated to Pace Brantley School’s art program. Many of the items – frames, mattes, tools and paints – will be used by students to create specialty art that will be auctioned at Pace’s Annual Spring Fundraiser, Grow With Us!
