Students are working on the Acapella App, where they can multi-video track themselves. Students can record up to nine tracks and then share and collaborate with others.
Dance is a holistic exercise that builds one’s mind and body, as students explore their creative spirit and artistic expression. As part of the performing arts offered at King School, students can start taking dance in middle school and continue to build their skills in the high school dance course.
We believe that combining dance and academics enhances the student experience. Dancing improves overall fitness, endurance, muscle toning, and strengthening since it involves cardiovascular/aerobic fitness, core and strength training, and stretches for flexibility. Additionally, through group collaboration and teamwork, our dancers develop a healthy sense of confidence and team spirit while gaining a greater understanding of nonverbal communication and expression through movement and body language.
The King dance program welcomes students who are experienced dancers and those who are dancing for the first time, giving students an opportunity to discover multiple styles of dance through choreography.
Styles offered: Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical, Contemporary, and Modern

Congratulations to all our US students who participated in the production of "The Importance of Being Earnest" last weekend. "It is a very challenging play for young actors given that pronunciation, diction, vocal energy, and the appropriate inflection of operative words is imperative," Mark Silence, Performing Arts Faculty.
Congratulations to five King students who auditioned on November 16 and were accepted to perform in the Western Regional Music Festival. The Festival takes place January 17-18, 2020 at Darien High School. The festival is the brainchild of the Connecticut Music Educators Association (CMEA). The CMEA's mission is to "provide programs and activities for professional educators, students and future music educators striving to enhance the quality of music education for all children" and the CMEA launched its first All-Connecticut Festival in 1936.
Whether they were on stage, on crew, or manning the sound board, our students had the opportunity to make personal and cultural discoveries by participating in the creative, disciplined and collaborative process.
