Performing Arts


  • Elizabeth High School Performing Arts Department offers classes in a variety of performing arts disciplines including vocal music, instrumental music, and theatre. Some of the offerings include marching band, jazz band, orchestra, piano, choir, technical and performance theatre just to name a few. The courses incorporate studying the concepts, theory, and history of the various disciplines of performing arts. Students learn through listening, discussing, playing, creating and performing.

    The Performing Arts program provides beneficial, educational, and accessible experiences for a diverse population of young people. The program ranges from beginners just starting in the arts to those talented high school students looking to immerse themselves in the performing arts and to further develop their skills and abilities.

    The enthusiasm and commitment of the staff and students lead to academic excellence. Students gain experiences that stimulate learning and spark creativity and imagination. Arts can play a vital role in helping young people develop a greater appreciation for learning.

    Our students perform locally, around the Denver metro area and throughout the state in concerts, festivals, musicals, and competitions. We’re known for our outstanding musical performances including "Seussical" and "Disney's The Little Mermaid", for our comedies such as "The Canterville Ghost", and for the EHS Cardinal Pride Marching Band who took 6th in the 2016 state competition.
