The Benefits of the Performing Arts
The performing arts offers numerous benefits to children here are our Top 5 ways the performing arts can benefit your child.
A lot of our families choose the performing arts as an extra curricular activity for their children to help build their confidence. We hear from many of our parents that Spotlights classes have helped to improve their child’s confidence, giving them the opportunity to shine. Children often have increased pressure placed on them from exams or other schoolwork, our classes give them the space to express themselves and step out of their comfort zone.
Developing Teamwork Skills
In our classes our students are often encouraged to work as a team in their class, sharing responsibility and comprising with others. Our students soon begin to understand that everybody’s contribution is valuable to the success of the group, which gives them the confidence to embrace their role especially when within an ensemble.
Making new Friends
Many of our students have made life long friends whilst attending Spotlights. The bonds you create just from spending a class together can last a lifetime through your shared love of the performing arts.
The performing arts can help children to develop their communication skills especially through drama class. Students learn about the importance of speaking with clear diction and not letting the nerves get the better of them. These skills are important when forming a connection with an audience during a production.
Within our classes you have the freedom to express yourself through dance, singing and drama. A child’s creativity through improvisation helps them to think on their feet and solve problems.
