Students in Grades 1 through 12 have plenty of opportunity to engage in after school activities on both campuses including the popular Circus Arts Club for Grades 4-8, High School Student Council, Drama Club, Surf Club, Spanish Club, Integrated Fighting (IF) Club, and Community Service Club, to name a few.
Circus arts are part of the physical education curriculum at the Honolulu Waldorf School. Through activities like acrobatics and tumbling, children are encouraged to experience and gain an awareness of the space around them. When students feel comfortable moving in their bodies as well as extending into the space around them, their strength is felt both physically and emotionally. Through these activities, along with games and sports, children can learn to meet one another, and the challenges that the world brings to them, with confidence. Capacities as an adult to be flexible, to lead a balanced life, to help and support others, and to juggle life’s tasks are exercised as a child through the circus arts.
Students explore various aspects of theatre including technique, exercise, and history. Their rehearsals throughout the year culminate in a final theatrical production.
New to the Drama Club is Master Class Project, a series of classes/workshops throughout the school year, taught by professional artists and master teachers in various areas of the performing arts. Classes are held on Friday afternoons from 3:30pm to 5:30pm in the high school's auditorium. The program's purpose is to provide students a taste and knowledge of the various stage disciplines, to pique their curiosity about exploring them, and to enhance their abilities and confidence as performers.
