DANCE

Ross' vibrant Dance Programme exists due to the vision of former dance teacher Enza Gaumond. Over the years it has grown to include classes in all grades and to support an excellent extra-curricular programme, Royal Rhythm. The Dance curriculum not only allows students to study artistic expression through different​ forms of dance from many cultures, but it also examines the benefits of exercise, nutrition and the physiology of dance. Royal Rhythm showcases the

talents of young choreographers and dancers both in our 853 seat theatre, E. L. Fox Auditorium, and within the community.

VISUAL ARTS

Aside from the standard grade nine and ten open arts courses and grade eleven and twelve college/university M level courses, we have several specialized courses geared to meet the needs of JFR students.  Our Crafts course, AWA, is an example of one such course.

*In grade ten, students can select the Media Arts course which reflects on both time-based media (film and animation) as well as explores digital photogaphy. 

 

 

*In grade eleven, students who have completed this course can continue his or her interests in time based media by taking the Intro to Film course.

*In grade twelve, students wishing to create more art for their portfolio admissions for post-secondary programs, students can take Drawing and Painting upon completing AVI4M.
