The Dobson Performing Arts Department has a rich tradition of excellence, with opportunities for students to be involved in marching band, concert band, percussion ensemble, color guard, string orchestra, full orchestra, women's choir, mixed choir, guitar ensemble, AP Music Theory, and musical theater.
Traditionally, the department travels every other school year, and produces a musical on the off year. Ensembles from Dobson have traveled to in-state festivals in Flagstaff and Tucson, as well as out-of-state destinations such as Anaheim, CA; San Francisco, CA; Indianapolis, IN; and New York City, NY.
Being involved in the Performing Arts offers many positive musical -- and non-musical opportunities. For a deeper understanding of how important the arts can be for your child, check out this article: https://www.healing-power-of-art.org/art-and-the-brain/.
