At our private school in Shanghai, we think that the best learning comes when children and young people have lots of exciting opportunities and experiences. Performing arts are a brilliant addition to any education – the perfect way to boost students' confidence and creativity, and give them a chance to witness the results of teamwork, dedication and practice.
Music, drama and dance allow students to take risks – to learn how to work with others and to learn about themselves. There's nothing quite like the excitement of a performance, knowing that the hours, days and weeks of solo practice and teamwork are all about to be tested in the crucible of the auditorium or theatre. For parents, too, the joy of watching your child visibly grow and flourish in front of you is an unforgettable experience.
