BIS Hanoi is a part of the Nord Anglia Education family, the world’s leading premium schools organisation. Ambitious for its students and staff, the group wants to work with the world’s best organisations to provide them with outstanding opportunities and experiences. Developing a performing arts programme around this belief, a collaboration with The Juilliard School, a world leader in performing arts education, was formed to enhance and enrich excellent existing performing arts programmes taking place at schools.
The Juilliard School is a world leader in performing arts education. Juilliard’s mission is to provide the highest calibre of artistic education for gifted musicians, dancers and actors from around the world. Juilliard’s world-class education in all three core performing arts, which the school’s teachers will deliver in an integrated fashion, gives our students first-class learning experiences, and also provides high-level professional training and personal development opportunities for our teachers.
Several studies have shown the performing arts should play a key role in a child’s education. Researchers are linking the study of performing arts to better child development and higher academic achievement. Other benefits include creativity and innovation, self-confidence, self-expression, empathy, cultural awareness and appreciation.
“The performing arts are able to touch the mind, the heart and the soul like nothing else. They inspire us and move us, as well as contributing to academic, social and personal growth. The arts develop in our students a wide range of the qualities and attributes needed to flourish in the 21st century and beyond,” said Andy Puttock, Education Director for Nord Anglia Education.
