The value of a performing arts education

08 December 2016

What is the value of creativity amid fast-paced technological change? While automation may uproot life as we know it, some skills such as creativity, confidence and global awareness are hard to replace. A curriculum steeped in the performing arts will help future generations build these skills.

Creativity, emotional intelligence, critical thinking are just some of the skills named by the World Economic Forum as qualities needed to succeed in the 21st century. In my latest blog for the Huffington Post, I talk about the value of a performing arts education in supporting the development of these transferrable skills needed in the future. Following the first successful year of our enhanced performing arts curriculum in collaboration with The Juilliard School, Nord Anglia Education conducted a survey to evaluate the impact on our students. The results evidence the importance of an arts education in the age of robots and automation.

Our performing arts collaboration with The Juilliard School prepares your child for the world stage. The embedded performing arts curriculum is designed to deeply engage your child in music, dance and drama while building transferrable skills that are vital for success in school and later in life.
