The Gator Band has a long and storied history of success across the state and the nation.
In-band students learn about and experience the joy of preparing and performing music through a wide variety of rehearsal and performance opportunities such as marching band, concert band, and color guard. As a result, students develop a mindset of pursuing excellence in both solo and ensemble endeavors in a safe, healthy, and positive environment.
Band begins in the sixth grade and continues through high school, while the color guard is for high school students only. If a student has not participated in the sixth grade but is interested in joining the band, please check with their junior high school band director.

Dickinson ISD's Choral Classrooms are dedicated to giving every Gator the opportunity to not only form a world-class skill and appreciation of a life-long art form, but your students will also be learning the skills necessary for leadership roles in a growing world.
From 6th to 12th grade, all Dickinson Choir students are placed in choruses that meet them where they are yet still challenge them to become world class musicians. Through community and public performances, vocal competitions, choral festivals, and State level competitions and venues, our Singing Gators are prepared to be the face of choral music in Texas for the next several decades. Every student has a place in the choir, whether they are a first year, or have been singing since birth.
In addition to developing vocal and sight-singing skills, DISD Choir directors take pride in their ability to develop and influence leaders in our community. Students taking choir find themselves in an active and engaging environment, while also learning how to use their leadership abilities. Choral students in Texas consistently find themselves accepted to colleges and given loans for schooling at a dramatically higher rate than their peers who are not, largely due to learning necessary professional skills taught in the choral classroom, such as: organization, personal responsibility, punctuality, individual and group accountability, presentation and public speaking, and long term goal-setting.
DISD Choir is excited to help your students reach not only their personal goals, but to become world-class and life-long musicians! Go Gators!
Dickinson ISD’s diverse and active dance program offers dancers the opportunity to perform in sports venues, informal settings and in completive dance environments. Our dance teams perform traditional genres at football games in the fall and explore more diverse genres in the spring with our competition and spring show performances. Our dance classes provide students with the basic dance skills through ballet, jazz, modern, improvisation and hip hop. The various course levels allow for the student to develop his/her skills at an appropriate pace, which leads to the student developing self-confidence and an appreciation for dance as an art form.
“Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion.” - Martha Graham
At Dickinson ISD, we believe that theatre teaches skills
that last a lifetime. Play production involves more than just
memorizing lines and performing on stage. Theatre creates
a welcoming environment for all students to feel safe and
free to express their art in an accepting environment.
While working on stage and backstage, students grow in
self-confidence, self-awareness, initiative, responsibility,
sacrifice, dedication, leadership, creative thinking, problem
solving, goal setting, time management, group dynamics,
and group decision making. The theatre faculty works to
prepare students for all fields of study through the skills of
We also learn applications of practical skill -- carpentry, use
of power tools, design applications, painting techniques,
interior decoration, interview skills, public speaking, public
relations, costuming, makeup, accounting, visual effects,
and sound and video techniques.
Thank you for appreciating our creative efforts; and thank
you for supporting the arts in Dickinson ISD.
