Academy of Academic Excellence (Performing Arts)



Lights! Camera! Action!


Knox Elementary School is super, super excited to present “Knox Academy of The Performing Arts”.  Our scholars will begin the 2020-2021 year with a burst of excitement focusing on music 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. 

Our 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.
