Dexter Southfield offers a range of opportunities in the performing arts at each level of development. Beginning in the early grades, the music program offers a balance of theory, history, and vocal and instrumental music making, in addition to performances at school events. Theater activities, including classes and productions, begin in Class 4 and build in depth and scope through the Middle and Upper School years. Dance instruction is also available to students as an in-school activity or after school program.
“The feeling of delivering a successful performance is like none other. Entertaining an audience is a thrill, but it's more than that — it's about expressing something meaningful through art, in a way that makes our lives richer.” - Mr. Drew Maletz, Performing Arts Faculty
