Our aspiring musician, actors and dancers are offered a range of resources to extend their learning and have access to several music, dance and drama competitions on Performing Arts Xtra!
Nord Anglia Education Virtual Musician of the Year competition: Whether they play wind and string instruments, drums or sing - our musicians aged 9 - 17 are encouraged to select, prepare and enter their performance which will be accessible to our international audience on Global Campus.
The NAE Community Dance Project has been designed to bring our students from across the globe together to create a virtual wall of movement. Our students and their family members are invited to find a space that inspires movement, then practice a dance and film it to contribute to the wall.
Those students that enjoy the thrill of the stage can enter the The Viral Monologues competition. Following the example of actors and performing artists in New York who have got together to create online readings of monologues to entertain the community, we challenge our students tell us: ...What’s your story? How has someone in your community helped you or how have you helped others? Students are invited to write a short monologue and perform it on video, then share it with the Global Classroom community. For students in Years 9 -13, the challenge goes a step further: Students are invited to research and use Verbatim Theatre to create and enter a monologue for the Viral Monologue Competition.
Global Campus in Action - Ask the Artist
"Ask the Artist" is an opportunity for Nord Anglia Education (NAE) students to ask questions of Juilliard Artists who have chosen the Performing Arts as a career. Our unique Global Campus platform, connecting 66.000 NAE students across 29 countries, offers our students the opportunity to read the artist’s biography, listen to and watch him or her perform, and then post a questions for the artist.
Global Campus’ current featured #AskTheArtist is James Davis, an award winning actor who has just starred in the Tony award winning musical Oklahoma! on Broadway. After reviewing many hundreds of entries, James Davis chose questions from 20 Nord Anglia students, including one by our inquisitive Chloe in Year 5.
Chloe chose a question on the topic ‘resilience’ and asked the artist:
Have you ever experienced anything discouraging in your career? If so, what did you do to carry on and keep going?
Watch his answer on Global Campus!
