The Juilliard - Nord Anglia Performing Arts Programme is a multifaceted collaboration involving an innovative arts education curriculum for students from Pre-Nursery to Year 13.
From September 2015 our students will benefit from a unique performing arts curriculum jointly developed by Nord Anglia Education and Juilliard, which has been designed to inspire our students with artistic ambitions and enrich the creative skills of all students beyond the arts. It will give each student a “Creative Key” to unlock their imagination and creativity which is useful in all types of learning and in all walks of life.
We are one of 10 Nord Anglia Education schools chosen as launch schools for this new programme which will expand to all 31 schools worldwide by 2017.
Built around music, dance and drama, the learning model for the curriculum will meld aesthetic education with hands-on activities. Key to the success of the programme will be a tailored training programme for our teachers and the development of a collaborative teaching community to link them with artists from Juilliard’s network.
We are also looking forward to welcoming Juilliard artists to BISS Puxi to work with our students, teachers and parents. This exclusive performing arts collaboration with the world famous Juilliard School is a fantastic development which will provide truly world class performing arts opportunities for our students. It is a very exciting prospect for our whole community.
To launch this exciting innovation we will soon be inviting you to an introductory event. This will include an explanation of the programme and a short performance from a Juilliard alumnus. We will be sending you a formal invitation to this event as soon as we have finalised the dates.
