Creative freedom is an underlying principal at Pacem, and Performing Artsstudents are encouraged to explore and develop their creative expression and to broaden their exposure to and appreciation of others’ creative expression. Through extra-curricular activities, such as Spyglass Theater or the multi-media Choreography and Performance group, and through independently designed projects, students have the opportunity to grow as performing artists under the care and tutelage of both peers and faculty members. Annual events, such as the Showcase of the Arts, provide an opportunity for community performance, appreciation, and support. Additionally, Pacem coordinates with arts institutions and community arts organizations for field trips and further study.
