The Value of a Performing Arts Education

What is the value of creativity amid fast-paced technological change? In his Huffington Post article, Nord Anglia Education CEO, Andrew Fitzmaurice, highlights the notable impact on students’ creativity, confidence, and global awareness from our enhanced performing arts curriculum.

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 his latest blog, Andrew talks 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.

You can learn more about our survey results and the value of an arts education in Andrew’s blog on the Huffington Post Can an arts education save future careers in the age of robots?

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.
