Each year, SNA Marianapolis will offer 3 opportunities to develop and perform a work of art on the stage. Comedies, dramas, musicals, improvisation and more will all be explored and experienced. These programs will be performance in nature but also can be participated in through clubs.
Whether classical ballet or tap, modern jazz or Latin, there will be many forms of dance taught and performed at SNA Marianapolis. Students will be able to join performances groups or take the stage for solo acts. And the dancing does not end there, you may see a flash mob anywhere on campus!
Musical offerings spread across individual instruments such as piano and guitar, and also include ensembles and groups be it Jazz Band, Rock Band or Orchestra. For vocalists, choirs and chorus, solo artists, and more will be available. There is something for everyone!
An SNA Marianapolis International School education begins in the traditional classroom space, but it does not end there. Here, learning continues on athletic fields, across dance floors, and behind camera lenses. At SNA Marianapolis, the Middle and Upper School students must participate in two seasons out of three for extracurricular activities every year. For our elementary students, seasonal participation in group activities will be facilitated to build confidence, promote wellness, and hone interpersonal skills.
SNA Marianapolis helps students discover the joys of creating by providing safe spaces to explore, make mistakes, collaborate, and succeed. From the curious novice to the lifelong learner, the arts program helps develop knowledge, skill, and appreciation within music, dance, and theater.
While visual arts are most often part of the academic curriculum, there are plenty of opportunities for the talented artist to explore these passions in the extracurricular realm, too. Media Team, for example, is a group of students who works with the communications department to capture images from extracurriculars all across campus, and help with the graphic and written composition to accompany these photos in the school’s magazine. Similarly, there are yearbook and art magazine positions that create opportunities for students to focus on highlighting the visual and performing arts through annual publications as well.
Many students use extracurricular activities to stay healthy – mind and body. Whether they take center stage in a dramatic production, or find spiritual balance through yoga, students grow in countless ways outside the classroom.
