VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS
The Arts program is a child-centric curriculum which has been designed to help the child see, express and appreciate art. Starting with the elements of design (line, colour, shape, space, texture, etc) students gradually move in depth to the principles of design (balance, pattern, emphasis, contrast, rhythm, and etc).
Music classes at Glentree Academy foster & develop skills in performance and musicianship. Students are encouraged and enabled to express themselves musically and respond to music made by others. Students achieve these musical goals through singing, rhythm activities, creative movement, playing instruments, and listening activities.
The Dance program offers a combination of coordination, strength, flexibility and spatial awareness that are not only the basics for all other sports, but are also skills for life. The curriculum is designed to be progressive, safe, fun, and motivate boys & girls alike. Students are encouraged to strive for both individual and team performances.
Acting is a life skill that develops creativity, collaboration and communication. These are vital skills for today’s classrooms and tomorrow’s working adults. The Theatre program offers fun-filled and meaningful theatrical experiences.
The clubs at GR Academy give students the chance to apply classroom learning to the outside world. This helps them to gain invaluable leadership as well as life skills, connecting with other students who have similar interests. To shape personal interests and hobbies, every student at GR Academy is a member of one of the clubs.
