Kristin Performing Arts
Whether in the spotlight or the wings, behind a microphone or the lighting desk, there is something for everyone in the Performing Arts at Kristin. Excellent Music, Drama and Dance programmes are offered through the Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme, NCEA and the International Baccalaureate.
Annual performance events include productions, music and drama festivals (on a regional and national level), dance performances, concerts and multi-cultural celebrations. Kristin is proud of a tradition of excellence and an outstanding reputation in the Performing Arts. Whatever the discipline of choice, the experience is certain to be unique and enriching for every student who chooses to become part of a Performing Arts event at Kristin.
Connecting Through Performance
In a technology driven world, the Performing Arts continue to provide a bridge to self-expression. Although information can cross the planet in the blink of an eye, effectively communicating with the person next to us can sometimes prove impossible. Connections through performance, however, can speak volumes, transcend barriers, ignite the senses and touch the soul, without a word being exchanged. Through the range of Performing Arts opportunities available at Kristin students can learn to truly express themselves, thereby discovering a sense of themselves in the world - of their potential to explore, to create and to communicate.
The quality of our Performing Arts processes, productions and co-curricular programmes is our point of difference and forms the basis of our strong reputation. Our highly professional and passionate Performing Arts team, supported by a superb group of parents, is committed to consistently providing our students with unique, life-changing experiences. All three schools collaborate in key production events and in addition to performance participation, there are opportunities for hands-on experience in aspects of staging, lighting, sound, wardrobe and theatre management.
