Performing Arts

The Performing Arts Program at ICEF Public Schools includes content that exposes children to the complementary influences of physical, social, and academic development -- offerings that go beyond the core academic curriculum into practical and active experiences. ICEF has a range of student performance groups that train in music, dance and drama. These groups include jazz band, dance troupes, choirs, youth orchestra and production.
