School of the Arts
Rosedale students are challenged in an academic program with an arts focus.
Every year our students enjoy many opportunities to be actively involved - a mainstage production of a full length play, a musical, dance shows, evenings of music, and a variety of Visual and Media Arts shows.
They also participate in the Sears Drama Festival, produce a series of student choreographed dance pieces, write plays for a Fringe Drama Festival, produce their own films and display their own photographs.
At Rosedale Heights, students grow and nurture their talents!
World Dance: Ballet, Modern, Contemporary.
Study dance as a beginner or as an experienced dancer. Our teachers work closely with you to determine your placement in the most appropriate level. All students perform in our end-of-year Dance Show. Throughout the year, dance students perform in concerts and assemblies. Grade 12 dance students present original compositions performed by dancers in grades 9 – 12 at our Annual Choreographic Workshops. Inexperienced male dancers may select an all male class for beginners until they feel prepared for our co-ed classes. Read more about Dance
