Information for Students and Parents about Arnold High School Theatre & Dance:

Arnold Theatre & Dance has three primary ways for students to get involved. Student’s may participate in one, two, or all three of these areas of involvement and can choose from year to year to be more or less involved based on their individual goals, needs, and time availability. The three areas of involvement and a brief description of each are listed below.

1. Theatre & Dance Classes

Students may take one of each of the following each year OR choose to only take one class if they’d like. Unique courses are offered each year and may include:


  • Dance Techniques: Focused on learning principles of musical theatre dance including tap and jazz. This class is for beginners AND experienced dancers to explore these styles and expand their technique in level 1 and delve deeper including choreography and more complex skills in level 2. These courses are taken in order and students can go up to level 4 which is an honors course. Students in this class will participate in recital.

Example events and activities include:

  • School plays
