The Importance of the Performing Arts

Expanding Creativity – Being able to think on your feet, approach tasks from different perspectives and think ‘outside of the box’ will distinguish your student from others.

Building Confidence – The skills developed through theater, not only train you how to convincingly deliver a message, but also build the confidence you need to take command of the stage.

Growing Problem Solving Skills – Without even realizing it students that participate in the arts are consistently being challenged to solve problems.

All this practice problem solving develops skills in reasoning and understanding.

Enhancing Collaboration Skills – Most arts disciplines are collaborative in nature. Through the arts, students practice working together, sharing responsibility, and compromising with others to accomplish a common goal.

Strengthening Focus – Keeping a balance between listening and contributing involves a great deal of concentration and focus. It requires each participant to not only think about their role, but how their role contributes to the big picture of what is being created.
