Performing Arts

Dance

Berkshire's dance program offers an eclectic variety of dance styles, including contemporary, modern, jazz, hip hop, ballet, and tap. Students explore dance as a powerful tool for expression, creativity, and discussion and take part in the creative process of putting on three main stage dance concerts each year. As part of our commitment to community service, students perform at Claire Teague Senior Center in Great Barrington.

EXPLORE DANCE

Music

With 13 live performances each year, there is no shortage of opportunity for our student musicians. The music department offers a variety of opportunities, including jazz ensemble, a cappella, chorus, digital music, music theory, chamber music ensemble, and independent study in numerous areas.

EXPLORE MUSIC

Theater

Our theater department is unique in being a totally hands-on, all-voices-heard, ensemble-first experience. While many students are eager for the opportunity to perform, the program also allows for students to explore other theater-related interests, including directing, stage management, set building, costume design, and lighting. Recent performances have included Spamalot, Romeo & Juliet, Grease, In the Heights, Metamorphoses, Into The Woods, and The Crucible. The Theater Department, which co-founded the Annual High School Improv Festival, also offers academic classes in improvisation, which culminate in the BIMP (Berkshire Improv) showcase each semester.

EXPLORE THEATER

The Performing Arts at Berkshire include dance, music and theater programs, each of which allow students to explore their creative side while learning how-to express themselves confidently and effectively.

Each spring, theater and dance come together for a unique Student Performing Arts Showcase, giving seniors a capstone experience to direct and/or write a short play and choreograph a dance piece. The seniors are then provided with student auditioners, technical and logistical support, and a budget to bring their short original works to life. To learn more, see article below.
