  • Curtain Call for John A. Saks ’31 Auditorium

    The Hun School students traveling to The Festival Fringe this summer will return to campus with more than just cherished memories; they’ll be armed with a working knowledge of performing in non-traditional venues. It’s something they’ll need to draw upon beginning this fall as the John A. Saks ’31 Auditorium will be closing its doors in June. Fundraising is currently underway and if everything continues to go well, the theatre is slated to undergo a complete renovation.

  • Mo Cheol Thú! 25 Hun Students to Perform at The World’s Largest Arts Festival

    It all started with an invitation. Or, more precisely, the lack of an invitation. After eight performance groups showed up uninvited to the Edinburgh International Festival in 1947, they decided to perform anyway—on the fringe, which spurred the creation of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

  • Student Profile: Gigi Schadrack

    Gigi Schadrack began dancing ballet at the age of three. The Hun School senior, who spent much of her childhood in Lucerne, Switzerland, has trained with prestigious ballet schools both abroad and here in the States. While she was on the professional track for many years, Schadrack didn’t want to make a choice between pursuing ballet and academics. “In Switzerland, you have to choose at the age of ten, but I wanted to do both.” It’s one of the reasons she chose The Hun School—both for its breadth of academic offerings and its proximity to Princeton Ballet School, where Schadrack dances six days a week in addition to performing with American Repertory Ballet.

Student Life

Arts

Arts education teaches that the inspiration of an artist springs from the sum of life experiences and from the various frameworks of history and values in our backgrounds. It is important for students to develop an understanding and appreciation for the arts within their own, as well as other, cultures.

The arts contribute to increased self-awareness and one’s own capacity for contribution to the larger community of humanity. Fine Arts courses provide access to both practical and hands-on experiences, and an opportunity to learn through reading, observing, and writing. The goals are to develop reasoning, offer thought and information behind judgment, and give imagination a place to flourish.
