Nearly 4,000 Skyline students attend festival celebrating arts in public schools (video)


Skyline High School, Dallas ISD’s largest campus, hosted a High School Nation outdoor music festival this week.

The nationwide tour celebrates the arts in public school systems. Nearly 4,000 Skyline students attended the music and arts show, which was led by professionals in the industry. Participants had the opportunity to shadow experts and learn how a production comes together. For example, students got to take drum lessons; learned how to DJ; painted on canvas; designed their own hats; and learned to use green screen animation.

Others learned to dance from the winner of South Africa’s “So You Think You Can Dance.”

High School Nation (HSN) tours are being held at a total of four Dallas ISD campuses this week: Seagoville, Skyline, David W. Carter, and W.T. White high schools. HSN will build a new studio for each of the selected campuses for a total value of $120,000.
