Durham Academy's performing arts programs are for everyone — whether students have their eye on Broadway, or if the thought of stepping on stage is truly stepping outside their comfort zone.
We offer classes in vocal and instrumental music, theatre, technical theatre and dance. In addition to our curricular offerings, students have the opportunity to participate in the performing arts via a student-led a cappella group, a fall play and — the centerpiece of the performing arts program — the winter musical. DA musical productions and students have consistently been consistently selected as finalists for the Triangle Rising Star Awards. For detailed course descriptions, see the Upper School Course Catalog.
