The Performing Arts program includes chorus, band, orchestra, dance, theater, hula halau and more. Strings, percussion and voices resonate through the halls of the Castle Building's ground floor. Dancers plie with grace in ballet class, or ami ami with precision in hula halau. The ‘Iolani Dramatic Players earnestly rehearse their parts for the fall play or spring musical.
Equally vibrant, our engaging Visual Arts program exemplifies our belief that everyone has a unique way of seeing, thinking and feeling. Colors and abstract patterns leap from the walls of classrooms in the Art Building. Courses offer drawing, painting, watercolor, sculpture in wood and metal, ceramics, photography, design and more.
‘Iolani visual and performing artists have been recognized locally and nationally, from the Scholastic Art Awards competition to their participation in community concerts, parades, shows and productions.
Student shows and performances take place throughout the school year.
