The performing arts is a way of life at Greenhill.
 
The performing arts program allows students the opportunity to immerse themselves in a number of award-winning disciplines. Whether it is theatre, dance, band, orchestra or choir, students are given the opportunity to express themselves in one of the creative avenues. Theatre and dance work togther to produce several major events each year, including feature-length dramas and musicals along with student-directed productions.
 
Beginning in Preschool, students are exposed to the performing arts, including Kindergarten's annual performance of the The Nutcracker. In Lower School, students begin to expand their creativity with plays along with choir concerts. By Middle School, students have the opportunity to choose from band, strings, and choir as they continue their journey. By the time students begin Upper School, they can begin to focus their attention on their passion.

Theater

Performings Arts are a big deal. A retired teacher once said, "Musicals are big productions. It is bigger than the talents of one person. We need the Dancers, Singers, Band, Orchestra and Tech Crew. We need every available talent and every inch of space to make a show work. No school does that better than Greenhill."
