Overview of the
Thank you to our sponsors!!!
The Academy Stars and Clowns are the ambassadors for the Academy for Academics and Arts. Directed by Mrs. Stricklin and accompanied by Christopher Joel Carter with assistance from Mrs. Atkins, these sixth, seventh and eighth grade students dazzle audiences with a lively song and dance presentation. The groups’ eclectic variety of music appeals to audiences of all ages. Membership in this group gives students more than a performance experience. The personal commitment by a student to be a part of the group, audition, attend all the rehearsals, care for costumes, learn theatrical make-up techniques and perform for the public teaches lifelong skills that transfer to academic success and career opportunities. In addition to proficiency in song and dance, the students learn problem solving skills, interpersonal skills, communication skills, poise, and self-confidence. Students also promote the arts to their peers and to the community.
