Red Carpet Awards 2017

The MacDuffie School - Red Carpet Awards 2017

Our annual Red Carpet Awards honored Arts students who excelled in the Music, Dance, Visual Art, and Theater programs. This fun, flashy event recognized Middle and Upper School students who made a notable contribution to the Arts at MacDuffie.

“Art allows us to do just that, to question ourselves and others and to be rule breakers,” said dance teacher Ms. Muzzy as the evening wrapped up. “We as teachers urge you to be big, bold and make mistakes, especially in the classroom. It’s when we step into the unknown and face our deepest fears that we actually accomplish creative, inspiring moments of truth and shine brighter.”
