The Performing Arts are a vital part of life at Balwyn High School.
Both curricular and co-curricular Drama and Theatre Arts are flourishing. The participation
in school productions has tremendous educational value. This participation challenges
students and is great fun!
Co-curricular Theatre Arts opportunities include school productions and musicals,
with performance, technical, backstage and stage-craft roles available – all areas
in which the students are encouraged to develop their skills. This program is designed
to extend the practical and performance focus of the VCE courses in Music and Performing
Arts that can be selected in Years 11 and 12. Drama and Dance are part of the curriculum
in Years 9 to 12. The students are encouraged to participate in a variety of classroom
activities and attendance at professional theatrical productions is encouraged.
