• E.P.I.C- (Experience.  Partnerships.  Inspiration.  Creativity)  This club is dedicated to students who want to experience cultural events and gain an appreciation for The Arts.  EPIC brings professional performances once a month, during the school day, to the Irmo Center for the Arts!  All Irmo students are welcome to join EPIC:  The Arts are for EVERYONE!
     
    Membership is $50.00- includes t-shirt, all performances (for which class absences are excused by the principal), and an Arts-centered field trip.
     
       
    All of the performances are geared toward students seeing different ways to apply their talents to make a career that fits them and sets them up for success.
