Why study performing arts?

Acting studies gives us the confidence to be seen. No matter which field of work we do, our ability to act in front of others will help us gain attention and propel us upwards in our careers.
Dance keeps us in tune with our body and our movements. Communication skills is both verbal and visual, and our bodies speaks volumes. It is essential to train this aspect of our daily lives.
Music is everywhere and our studies helps enhance our day to day experience. Musical studies also improve other academic areas for many students as studies have shown.
