Performing Arts are an integral part of school life at ASB. Students receive curriculum Music lessons PK3 - Grade 8, with Music electives for grades 9 and 10. IB Music is an option as part of the IB Diploma program for students who wish to study Music further in High School. Alongside curriculum Music, ASB offers a wide range of Music activities; Choirs, instrument lessons and a variety of musical ensembles. There are many performances throughout the year, which parents are encouraged to watch. We are a member of AMIS and participate in international music festivals.
Drama and Dance are taught through extra curricular activities, with high quality dramatic productions combining all disciplines of Performing Arts. Spotlight Musical is a yearly musical for MS/HS students, which combines elective LYNX classes with after school rehearsals. We run a successful musical theater program for students in grades 3-5.
In 2021-22 There will be some huge developments in the MS curriculum, where we can continue band and orchestra in grade 6 and develop theater and choir classes in grade 7. We will increase the amount of instruments offered through our ASB Music School program and develop the range of after school programs to include five new music ensembles and more theater options.
