The Performing Arts at Nord Anglia Education

At Nord Anglia Education we are passionate about all three performing arts. All students in our schools around the world experience music, dance and drama as they form an important part of our curriculum from the age of four right through to middle school. We strongly believe all three subjects play a crucial role in enabling our students to develop into intelligent, confident and well-rounded global citizens.
