Middle School Performing Arts Spring Festival

The NSCDS Middle School Performing Arts Spring Festival included dance routines, an instrumental ensemble and a classic production of Charlotte's Web.
All ages were welcomed to watch the Middle School Acting class, Dance class and Technical Theatre class put on performances and display their work. The Festival celebrated the process that each of these classes have journeyed through during second semester, culminating in an evening celebrating the arts.

The Acting and Technical Theatre classes presented Charlotte’s Web, based on the story by E.B. White and dramatized by Joseph Robinette. Determined to save Wilbur, Charlotte began her campaign with the "miracle" of her web in which she writes, "Some pig." It's the beginning of a victorious campaign which ultimately ends with the now-safe Wilbur doing what is most important to Charlotte. The students creatively used hand puppets to represent all of the animal characters.

The Dance class presented student choreography pieces by Brenna '22, Allie '22 and Niabelle '23. The dances ranged from Tap to modern Hip Hop.

Middle School Instrumental Ensemble members also presented musical transitions within the Festival, including Juliet '22 on the piano and Stephanie '22 and Beverly '23 performing a flute duet.
