Project Performing Arts

Kids who participate in performing arts gain skills that extend far beyond the standing ovation. 

It’s no secret that getting kids involved in the performing arts can have major payoffs in school. Research shows that children who sing/dance/act/play are four times more likely to be recognised for academic achievement compared with their non-performing friends – and have enhanced cognitive, motor, and social development. The benefits don’t end there. Getting up on stage can enrich your child’s life in all sorts of surprising ways. 

Kids who perform are quicker thinkers, master their anxiety, express emotions more articulately, have greater self-esteem and view the world in a whole new way. 

Regular weekly classes, competition, examinations and professional opportunities available.

  1. Pre-School Programs: Creative, Dance, Ballet and Acrobatics
