The Benjamin Franklin Classical Charter Public School and the Franklin School for the Performing Arts have worked in collaboration to offer students in grades six through eight access to classes in Dance and Introduction to French Melodie, musical theater and opera. Both programs are offered to students on site at the Franklin School for the Performing Arts during the school’s Classical Arts Block period.
The Benjamin Franklin Classical Charter Public School’s Arts Block offers students a choice of 33 programs throughout the year, each of which has been designed to provide students with opportunity to gain exposure and experience with a specialized topic. The French Melodie class at FSPA builds upon students existing knowledge of the French language, culture and history, gained through French instruction, which commences in Kindergarten at BFCCPS. Dance is a beginner/intermediate jazz class that introduces basic dance vocabulary, technique and combinations; no prior dance experience is required for students to participate in the program.
Students will have the opportunity showcase the techniques that they have learned this trimester in a short morning program to be held at 11am on November 24, 2014 at THE BLACK BOX, the newly opened home of the Franklin Performing Arts Company.
“We are incredibly fortunate to be able to offer these classes to our students thanks to the generous support of the staff at the Franklin School for the Performing Arts,” says Heather Zolnowski Head of School at the Benjamin Franklin Classical Charter Public School. “The staff at FSPA share our vision and dedication to provide classical arts and character education. This is a remarkable opportunity for our students.”
The Benjamin Franklin Classical Charter Public School has been in operation since 1995 and will celebrate its twentieth anniversary this spring. The school provides a well-rounded, rigorous academic program designed to educate the whole child. BFCCPS’s educational philosophy, which is centered around strong core academic subjects, as well as yearlong courses in art, music, languages, technology, and physical education, integrated character education and community service, and strong parent partnerships, has lead to local, state and national recognition.
