Arts at King: Dance (video)
December 21, 2022
R.H. King is regarded as a great school for many reasons; though, some of the main reasons are because of the specialized Arts and Culture Leadership Program as well as specialized courses offered to all students. R.H. King offers courses including dance, fashion, video production, musical theatre, and much more.
Lately, there have been rumours of these programs and courses being cut or severely limited by the TDSB. In response, co-editor-in-chief of Kingsley Voice, Tanisha Kumar, came up with an idea for a short “docu-series” called Arts @ King. As of December 21st, 2022, the first video of the series is complete and ready for release.
About the student:
Tanisha Kumar is a Grade 12 student enrolled in R.H. King’s Arts and Culture Leadership Program. She is very involved in arts at King as a senior member of King Visual Arts Council (KVAC) and a present and past student in King’s specialized art classes. Tanisha undertook the responsibilities of creating and managing a new, experimental segment of Kingsley Voice dedicated to video media and news. With her guidance and vision, the pilot was created.
About the video:
The series Arts @ King is hosted, produced and directed by Tanisha. The purpose of the series is meant to encourage enrollment and incite interest in King’s art courses in order to preserve them from cuts. The video details what the course is about by interviewing teachers and students. The teachers provide insight into the course material and student testimonials give personal insight to the experience and environment of the class. After the extremely helpful insight into the course itself, the video includes how and when to enroll and a short mission statement about arts at King.
The video is posted on the Kingsley Voice YouTube for all those interested to watch. The arts are an extremely important aspect of R.H. King’s identity and mean a lot to many many students. Enrollment and high interest is integral to preserve all specialized courses and programs at King.
