The Performing Arts SLC offers students course sequences in dance, theater, vocal, and various instrumental music programs. Students are encouraged to move their way up to higher level performing classes. The Performing Arts SLC has partnerships with Roundabout Theatre Co., Battery Dance Co., College of Staten Island, Richmond Philharmonic, and Berklee College of Music. Students in performing groups perform in and outside of school for various audiences including Broadway, Carnegie Hall and more.
