Garibaldi Secondary is proud to offer the Interdisciplinary Arts Academy (IAA). For students wanting to pursue an arts focus for their high school experience, students take a variety of arts courses to create an interdisciplinary program.
This is an off-timetable program. Our current season runs September through December.
IA Theatre Production
In this course, students learn area specific techniques and vocabulary while gaining ‘on the job experience’ for production departments such as lighting, sound, stage management, hair & makeup, running crew, set construction, and front of house.
IA Theatre Company
In this course, students develop ensemble building, organization, time management, problem solving and communication skills through practical experience of producing a live show.
IA Musical Theatre
In this course, students go through the process of auditions, rehearsals, tech week, dress rehearsal, and shows. Throughout this creative process, students develop vocabulary and techniques of putting on a musical theatre production.
In this course, students develop kinaesthetic and spatial awareness as they learn how to effectively study, rehearse, notate, and perform various styles and techniques of musical theatre choreography.
IA Contemporary Music
In this course, students study musical elements, vocal techniques, and get practical experience of performing musical theatre songs.
*Successful interview/audition required to register in any IA courses. Auditions will be held in April.
