Preparatory Performing Arts
Experience in the performing arts provides students with a creative way to view the world that can enrich and transform their lives. The performing arts curriculum at Gulliver consists of music, dance, drama, and video/film production courses. Students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of stage productions and ensembles.
The Gulliver Preparatory Music Department provides a conservatory-level program that offers important venues for students' musical abilities to be showcased. Gulliver Preparatory offers IB Music SL and HL as additional components to the impressive International Baccalaureate diploma program and an extension of the conservatory level music program. IB Music SL and HL explores music history, world music, performance, theory, and composition to offer students a complete music education.
The dance curriculum is divided into four areas of technique: Beginning, Intermediate, Advanced, and Composition.
The Theatre Arts Department helps students strengthen their confidence and raise their self-esteem through exercises, scene study, and dramatic literature study.
Gulliver's video/film program hosts a news-oriented daily television program, "RaiderVision," which teaches students the technical and creative skills necessary both in front of and behind the camera.
All of Gulliver's performing arts courses offer students a wealth of information, performance experience, skill development, and an opportunity to advance their artistry.
