The Performing Arts Department at Milken awakens, nurtures, develops, and celebrates the musical, physical, and dramatic artistic expression in each student. Within an atmosphere of the ethical and spiritual values of Judaism, students create honest and meaningful work, while pushing the limits of their own physical, mental, and emotional capabilities through music, dance, acting, and technical theatre. The School is also dedicated to sharing our artistic expressions for various community, social and charitable events.
