Performing Arts

Practical Experience, Endless Opportunities

Explore and discover artistic expression through body, mind, and voice in the performing arts. Students develop their abilities while gaining an enhanced understanding of the world around them. Performing arts do not stand alone but are an aspect and expression of the core values of any culture or discipline.

Explorations in Music

Students can take classes in Guitar, Piano, Voice Lab, Contemporary Performance Lab, Introduction to Recording Techniques, Instrumental Lab, and Music Theory. We have a vibrant private lessons program and can provide an appropriate instructor for each student's choice of instrument and skill set. A fully-equipped recording studio is available to all classes as a diagnostic tool to track progress and also as a means to create a professional quality recording.

Make Your Mark on Stage

New Hampton School offers a variety of theatre classes and self-designed courses to enrich the academic pursuit of all students, regardless of their levels of experience. Students who want to explore a new field or have a great new experience will find ample opportunities to learn and have fun. Serious performing arts students will be given tools to prepare for college undergraduate programs in theatre.

There are three mainstage productions each year, including a musical in the spring. In addition, New Hampton School offers a series of student-directed plays during the winter term.


Dance is a co-curricular offering a wide range of disciplines including ballet, modern, jazz, and hip-hop. Whether looking to pursue dance in college, trying something new or exploring recreational dance, students can find meaningful ways to practice and perform in dance.

Our program focuses on technique, art appreciation, choreography, performance, composition, and history. Proper body alignment is emphasized in all classes to promote injury prevention. Students participate in dance during afternoon co-curricular activity time.
