Saint Mary’s School invites you to explore and develop your creative talents in music, dance, theatre, and the visual arts.

Whether you’re bound for art school or just like to doodle, want to become a professional singer or just enjoy singing in the shower, hope to dance on Broadway or just turn a move at the prom, you’ll find classes that challenge and teachers who inspire.

Artistic pursuits may be motivated by curiosity, passion or an already developed discipline. No matter what your talent and goals, dedicated Saint Mary's teachers accommodate your level of skill and ambition and help you move forward.

Whether you are an artist, an actor, a dancer or a musician, visual and performing arts instructors strive to

  • Build your self-confidence by grounding you in your chosen discipline
  • Empower you to grow into a thoughtful, expressive adult
  • Teach you the appropriate level of skill to a degree that pride in creative outcome is a given
  • Motivate you and teach to your individual goals and learning style

I am so excited to welcome you to the 80th Anniversary Orchesis Dance Theatre Concert being performed on Friday, Nov. 9, at 7 p.m., and Saturday, Nov. 10, at 2 p.m. Our Saturday performance includes a one-of-a-kind celebratory reunion piece featuring not only current Orchesis Dance Theatre members but Orchesis Dance Theatre alumnae as well!

We have 14 dancers who are currently members of the Orchesis Dance Theatre company. I would like to recognize as first-time Orchesis members Cokie Daniel '22, Rebekah Elam '22, Riley English '21, Chloe Lias '22, and Sims Roberson '21.

We are extremely excited about Orchesis Dance Theatre alumnae joining us in concert! Orchesis alumnae have helped build and transform Orchesis over the years and continue to support the company. We are truly thankful for and indebted to you for your constant support. Thank you!
