School is super, super excited to present “Knox Academy of The Performing Arts”.
Our scholars will begin the year with a burst of excitement as our teachers, scholars, and parents
transform our school into a “stage of creativity”. The Performing Arts Academy
of Excellence will embrace dance. theater, and music. The Academy will provide
opportunities for our scholars to participate in theatre/musical productions,
the evolution of dance, and singing/performance presentations. Scholars attending
Knox will not have to sacrifice academics in order to pursue their passion for
the performing arts. Our dance lovers will explore Hip-Hop, African, and modern
dance techniques. Local dance studios and choreographers will assist with the introduction
and modeling of our dance components. Our music lovers will be inspired and encouraged
to develop resilience, growth and education regarding the different genres of
music and music appreciation. And, for our scholars who love to perform on “stage”,
our theatre department will provide our scholars the ability to showcase their
talents as they actively perform, design, and coordinate theatrical productions.
scholars will take educational excursions to visit schools that are recognized
for their awesome performing arts programs as well as witness live musical,
dance, and/or theatrical productions locally and outside of our city. If you
are passionate about the performing arts, the faculty, staff, and student body
of Knox welcome and appreciate your support in helping to ensure that our
scholars’ “burst of excitement” for
the performing arts last a lifetime.
