Welcome to Performing Arts!

The Oakland Technical HS Performing Arts Department aims to build integrity and artistry for individuals through being an active part of an ensemble through performing in any one or more of the four disciplines: Drama, Dance, Music and Theater Technical Management. In our classes we teach history, theory, notation, practice, composition and arranging, choreography and set-designs.

Our goals are to develop technique, adherence to rigour, artistry, time management, and concentration through Dance, Drama, Music and Stage Technical skills, and the personal perception as a performer, while building an understanding of the unique and important role that every individual plays in an ensemble, be it a play, a dance performance, musical accompaniment or group ensemble, or as the sound, lighting and back-stage crew.

To support our goals we request that students actively participate in class, rehearsals, fulfill their written assignments, practice their parts (Drama), agility (Dance), instrument (Music 20 minutes per day) and responsibilities (Techies).

All students must attend all of their rehearsals, and performances (see Calendar at this link). Students are responsible for notifying teachers well in advance and working out all arrangements for any conflicts arising with other activities and their performances.
