Grades 5 through 8 students annually select two of the performing arts areas mentioned above as "concentrations." Students will also be assigned a dance class and a PE class to meet state physical education requirements.
Grade 5 and 6 students will attend a 45 minute performing arts class each day.

If a student is not needed in the academic classroom for additional instruction, s/he will attend an enrichment class. Enrichment classes are taught by Kinsella's Performing Arts staff, & provide more intensive instruction in a focused artistic area.
Enrichment classes for Grades 6 through Grade 8 students will provide an intensive rehearsal & production process, supporting our Middle School Dramas, Middle School Dance Concerts, Middle School Vocal Concerts, & Middle School Band Concerts.
PreK through Grade 5 students will have a chance to share their talents in grade level showcase performances.
