I remember when I was a kid, I dreaded going back to school. The first day of school signals not only the end of summer fun, but the beginning of endless amount homework.
But with performing arts, students get a chance to nurture their creative side that will break up the monotony of their academic works, which in turn will make them better students and able to better handle everything else they do. Many scientific studies have shown that students who participate on a regular basis in a creative endeavor do better overall in other subjects in school.
The creative studies should be an integral part of every student's education. Allowing our brains to work in creative ways very often translates to students finding creative ways to solve problems in other areas of their lives. Different areas of performing arts studies will also provide students with additional skills such as public speaking, listening, improved mathematics and conceptual learning and more. Don't underestimate the power of what art can do in your child's life.
