Renaissance is one of only a few schools offering music and drama enrichment at the elementary level. At Renaissance, we believe instruction in musical theater aligns well with our beliefs about educating the whole child, providing outlets for self-expression and creativity. Through these programs children engage in active learning, develop character, expand their musicianship, develop perseverance and expand their collaborative skills.
Show Choir Round 2 - Show Tunes
Dates: March 23-27, 9AM to 3PM
Cost: $125 per kid
Open to students in K-6th
Description: Spend the week putting together a show full of songs from popular Broadway musicals! We will start with a brief overview of the history of musical theatre. We will then learn the lyrics to popular musical theatre songs, with choreography to match. In addition, we will have workshops throughout the week on vocal technique and body awareness. The week will end with a final performance of our show on the REMS stage! This is the week that the rest of DCSD is in session, so it is a perfect option for kids with siblings that have school! Please reach out with any questions. It is going to be a great time!
Registration: This enrichment is capped at 40 participants. Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration goes live on February 5th through My School Bucks, and closes on March 11th.
Archery is a great competitive individual and team sport that can enhance the growth and development of your child in more ways than you can count. We are the “Mile High Archers.”
Several outside organizations use classrooms at Renaissance for after-school activities. While these are not school sponsored activities, we provide their information as a service to our families. Staff from Renaissance are not involved in the planning and execution of these activities. Payment is made directly to the organizers, and the REA Enrichment Scholarship program is not applicable.

The REA board believes that all students should be able to participate in the school’s activity programs, regardless of the family’s ability to financially support these endeavors. A limited number of scholarships are available each semester to provide assistance to those in need.
