All of the arts, including the performing arts, are central to the Waldorf curriculum. Singing, speech and recitation, drama, recorder playing and movement are interwoven with subject matter in virtually every class.
In addition to classroom work, every grade student:
Performs annually in a class play, on our auditorium stage, for the entire school community;
Receives weekly violin, viola or cello lessons in 4th Grade;
Joins the school Orchestra or Band in 5th Grade, and plays in that ensemble through Grade 8, including two concerts yearly;
Sings in one of the two school choruses (5th-6th Grade, and 7th-8th Grade), including two concerts yearly; and
Performs with the class at four all-school assemblies during the year.
