How the Performing Arts can benefit your child

Music, dance and drama play a crucial role in enabling students to develop into intelligent, confident and well-rounded global citizens.

The performing arts are creative keys that can unlock your child’s imagination and significantly transform their education. Learning music, dance and drama has wide-reaching benefits for children, providing them with the tools to think creatively and innovatively. Studies show that students who participate in the performing arts achieve more academically, paying dividends in the classroom and preparing them for success now and in the future.

The performing arts have numerous benefits for children. They are a medium for self-expression, encouraging children to explore their emotions, expand their imagination and help them develop their own, unique voice, engaging their brain, body and emotions in different ways to encourage confidence. Learning to appreciate and engage in music, dance and drama from different cultures, communities and traditions is an important component in helping children develop into truly global citizens, promoting empathy and compassion. Alongside physical education, the performing arts help children with body control, awareness and fitness, encouraging positive lifestyle choices and help to reinforce the habits of health and wellbeing. Finally, the performing arts promote physical and personal development and help children find joy in self-expression.

Exposure to the performing arts from an early age can help children learn to communicate effectively and connect with others intellectually and emotionally acquiring skills such as poise, focus and overcoming anxiety, which best prepares them for presenting, communicating and leading in the future. 

The Juilliard School is a world leader in performing arts education. Founded in 1905, Juilliard’s mission is to provide the highest calibre of artistic education for gifted musicians, dancers and actors from around the world. St Andrews International School Bangkok, part of the Nord Anglia Education family of schools, is proud of its collaboration with the Juilliard School and the benefits it brings to our students. Teachers work together with Curriculum Specialists from Juilliard to enhance the way they teach the performing arts and promote excellence, inspiring your child to engage and connect with music, dance and drama at a deeper level through a first-class learning experience. 

“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.  

St Andrews was founded in 1997 on an attractive, conveniently located site, with excellent facilities and access to local transportation. Today we have approximately 1,900 students over two campuses, representing some 55 nationalities ranging from Foundation Stage to Year 13. Schedule a visit to our Primary School at Sukhumvit 71 or our High School next to Ekkamai BTS to learn more about our exciting collaborations.
