Whether staging published plays, writing original scripts, directing, performing or working hard behind-the-scenes on sets, costumes, and lighting design, Tabor students literally run the show in our theater program.
Both novice and experienced dancers take center stage in Tabor’s renowned dance program, which instructs students in all dance forms, from ballet to hip hop. Our competitive dance team has won over 49 awards for their unique performances.
From choral ensembles to chamber groups, from music festivals to open mic nights, the Tabor music program gives every vocal and instrumental student the opportunity to shine. We not only perform great music, but we learn music theory and how to compose original scores digitally.
Whether their passion takes them to photography, ceramics, sculpting, graphic arts or studio art, all student artists take a foundational class in visual thinking to teach them critical language and looking. Throughout the curriculum, in all disciplines, students develop their creative voice making connections between the arts, academics, and culture.
As students work collaboratively to produce music, dance, drama, publishing or video, they learn the rewards of communication, coordination, and leadership skills. Pushing together toward the limits of their time and talents, they practice responsibility, empathy, patience, and care for others.
We Support the Arts
We enjoy celebrating the talents of others. Whether attending a dance recital, a play, or a gallery opening, our students’ drive, courage, and talent motivates us and dares us to go further. Join us at a campus event and see for yourself!
