It's the most wonderful time of the year here at The Pingry School! Students have returned, extracurricular activities are taking place, lots of learning is happening, and relationships are being developed. In addition to all of these exciting happenings across our campuses, Pingry is delighted to introduce you to the newest members of our talented team for the 2021-22 school year.

Drama

The focus of all three years of Drama is the development of the individual. Using the categories set forth by Brian Way in his seminal work Development through Drama, each year the Drama classes will provide opportunities for growth in concentration, sensory awareness, imagination, physical self, speech, emotion, and intellect. The central concerns are first to help each individual discover his or her own resources and then to move on to explore the individual’s environment, which demands a conscious relationship with others who inhabit it. Since the primary concerns of drama match the natural development of a student in the passage from childhood into adolescence, this program is an essential Middle School art experience.
