Sounds of Essex Tech Integration Academy

We are excited to announce an all new and unique Sounds of Essex Tech  Integration Academy for students interested in a fun-filled, hands-on creative performance project involving rhythm, movement, and sound that will take place beginning on Thursday, January 5, 2023 and continue to Thursday, February 16, 2023!

 

The goal of this Sounds of Essex Tech Integration Academy is to provide students with a performing arts project that involves a dance, sounds, videotaping, and editing that will culminate in a Wang Theater performance and a video of the sounds that will be shared with the Essex Tech learning community.  An Essex Tech teacher will work with a EXYO performance artist from Express Yourself [EXYO], a performance arts group, located at the Cummings Center in Beverly.
