Performing Arts

Our mission is to enhance student achievement through an arts-integrated program.

 Our arts curriculum is aligned to the New York City Blueprint for the Arts, The Common Core ELA and Literacy and the New York State Arts Standards.

Performing Arts students at The Clinton School For Writers and Artists are engaged in creative theatre exercises to develop imagination, observation, and concentration.

Students are introduced to drama through activities such as improvisation, pantomime, storytelling, characterization, stage directions, and vocal projection. They will experience many opportunities for in-class and evening performances which may include the following: scenes and monologues, pantomime, puppet performances, radio plays, children’s plays, Shakespeare and other playwrights and reader’s theatre. Our curriculum is aligned to The New York City Blueprint for the Arts, The Common Core ELA and Literacy and the New York State Arts Standards. Ms. Hassan is the Performing Arts Teacher.

Seventh grade students in Ms. Hassan’s class performing “Inspriational Voices”. Students choose a person that they admire and write a monologue in their voice, then “act” as that character in front of parents.
