The Juilliard- Nord Anglia Performing Arts Programme Designed To Inspire Educational Excellence

The British School of Nanjing will become one of the few schools in the world to benefit from the complete Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Programme, including music, dance and drama. 

Delivered exclusively to NAE students, the Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Programme has NAE teachers working together with Curriculum Specialists from Juilliard to enhance the way the performing arts is taught at the school and to promote excellence, inspiring your child to engage and connect with music, dance and drama at a deeper level.

The confidence and the creativity that can be developed through a high-quality Performing Arts programme are such vital, transferable skills that I am very excited to see this collaboration, between two truly world-class organisations. Matthew Shephard, Principal of BSN

All students at BSN will experience music, dance and drama as they form an important part of BSN curriculum from the age of four right through through to the end of Key Stage Three when students choose their options for IGCSEs.. Our school strongly believes all three subjects play a crucial role in enabling students to develop into intelligent, confident and well-rounded global citizens.

The British School of Nanjing is 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 excellent existing performing arts programmes taking place at schools.

Our curriculum enhanced by Juilliard brings excellence to the education experience we give our students and positively impacts their overall academic performance. We want them to believe there is no limit to what they can achieve. said Andrew Fitzmaurice, CEO at Nord Anglia Education

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.

Damian Woetzel, President at The Juilliard School said: “The global collaboration that now exists between Juilliard and Nord Anglia Education is thrilling for us as we continue to build on Juilliard’s commitment to K-12 education. With this ground-breaking work, we are igniting creativity in students around the world, encouraging their lifelong engagement with the performing arts, and developing a truly expansive and full educational experience.”

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.
