Drama

Drama is about exploring the world you know, the world the way it could be and the world the way it was. It also allows you to develop your performance and leadership skills. When you study Drama at Logan Park you will gain the confidence to express yourself verbally and physically, while learning through doing and having fun.

Logan Park Drama students take charge of their own learning and are given the opportunity to share with peers and the wider community. All our senior work is presented at night time under real performance conditions – set, lighting, costume, music and of course appreciative audiences.

We also learn by seeing and have regular trips to experience live theatre.

Our Drama Department has a proud history of high achievement with ex-students such as Anna Henare and Tim Foley contributing to the performing arts both nationally and internationally. We have been awarded prizes in the National Shakespeare competition and have been invited to perform at international events.

Dance

Dance is about exploring the way our bodies move and how we can use movement to communicate and create. When you study Dance at Logan Park you will gain the confidence to express yourself verbally and physically, while learning through doing and having fun.

Logan Park Dance students take charge of their own learning and are given the opportunity to share with peers and the wider community. All our senior work is presented at night time under real performance conditions – set, lighting, costume, music and of course appreciative audiences.

We also learn by seeing and have regular trips to experience live dance performances and workshops.

Although our Dance Department is fairly new to Logan Park High School, we have a wealth of knowledge from both our teachers and students in the program. We already have a reputation of placing nationally in Stage Challenge in the last few years, and will continue to grow opportunities for our dancers both in and out of the school community.
