Parent Academy: Performing Arts at Nord Anglia

This presentation will provide a creative and active introduction to the Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Programme. Parents will engage in an activity from the Juilliard Creative Classroom to experience a first-hand insight into the educational opportunities offered to their child. We will also cover the philosophical and pedagogical grounding of the approach, discuss the alignment of the programme with the IB philosophy and curriculum, and explore ways that this unique programme provides students with world class experiences and opportunities in the Performing Arts.  We look forward to seeing you there!
