"Colin and I grew up together, dancing at the same studio in New Hampshire," explained Mrs. Lavallee. "His mom was my ballet teacher for many years. She made me love and stick with ballet training over the years."
Theatre and Dance
Students reach new heights with Episcopal's thriving Theatre and Dance program.
The study of theatre and dance plays a huge role in positive social development. It's a vital component of our holistic education, providing Lower, Middle, and Upper School students with a grounded, experiential, and cross-curricular education.
The Episcopal Academy Department of Theatre and Dance empowers students to experience the performing arts as a form of communication and self-expression by offering students a safe and diverse exploration of the theory, creation, and practice of performance.
