The fine and performing arts are for everyone, whether you choose to explore and develop a new interest or specialize in a current interest. Participation in the arts enhances your creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving abilities. 

The Fine and Performing Arts Program at EM High has a long tradition of quality and excellence.

Each year, a significant number of our graduates pursue the arts at the post secondary level. Many others continue to enjoy the arts and maintain a strong involvement for many years beyond high school. For this reason, we believe our Fine Arts Program and the related studies are a natural extension of an already strong program.

Fine and Performing Arts Includes

  • Visual Arts: Art, Ceramics, Drawing, Painting, Sculpting, Professional Development in the Arts (PDA)
  • Dance: Dance, Ballet, Contemporary Dance, Jazz Dance, Dance Composition, PDA
  • Drama: Drama, Advance Acting & Touring Theatre, Directing, Film Studies, Musical Theatre, Technical Theatre, PDA
  • Music: Instrumental Music, Band, Chamber, Instrumental Jazz, Choral Music, Chamber Ensemble, Choir, Vocal Jazz, PDA
