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.
Nord Anglia Education and The Juilliard School also offer Summer Performing Arts with Juilliard, which has expanded to include tailored courses for string players and singers. The two-week programmes are held in Geneva, Florida and Shanghai, annually.
