Bayshore Christian Performing Arts

In the words of William Shakespeare, “music hath charms to sooth a savage beast, to soften rock, or to bend a knotted oak.” In writing about the power of music, the poet implied its unique character among the arts and, indeed, among achievements of humankind. Music is arguably the purest articulation of the human spirit ever achieved and, as such, it is not only a treasure to be cherished and shared by all people but an unsurpassed medium of communication as well. For these reasons, Bayshore Christian School believes that an education in music and performing arts is essential to the development and well-being of each child.

Our Students Thrive

Bayshore Christian School is blessed to have Mr. Fernando Valdivia as the new director of performing arts. Mr. Valdivia brings more than ten years of experience as a teacher and more than thirty years as a performer. His main goal is to inspire the Bayshore Christian Community through his passion for the performing arts. Mr. Valdivia believes that with the right approach and individual attention to his students, he can bring out the best in them. Mr. V's students have the opportunity to thrive, both on and off the stage, as they explore the vast performing arts universe.

Many Performance Opportunities

Under the direction of Mr. Valdivia, BCS performing arts students bring Broadway to Bayshore! Students in grades 3 through 6 presented Annie, Jr. in the fall of 2015 and Seussical the Musical in the fall of 2016. Students in grades 7 through 12 presented High School Musical, On Stage during the spring of 2016 and West Side Story in May of 2017.

Last year was another banner year for BCS musical productions. In the fall of 2017, BCS students in grades 2 through 6 presented The Lion King, Jr., followed by a spring production of Into the Woods by our students in grades 7 through 12.
