7 Benefits of Performing Arts
#1. Builds Self Confidence
From improvisation to performing to their peers, friends and family, Performing Arts will take your child out of their comfort zone in a safe and fun environment. Taking part in classes slowly builds confidence and self belief in all students as they are nurtured and taught how to express their thoughts and ideas in a creative way.
Always culminating in a show where they will perform on stage for an audience. This confidence and ability to stand up in front of an audience and perform will stay with them throughout their lives.
#2. Improves Listening And Communication Skills
From conversing with their peers and coaches to get their thoughts heard to projecting their voice onstage or directing fellow students from behind the camera, there is no doubt that one of the main benefits of performing arts is to improve communication skills.
An added benefit is also the improvement of listening skills as they hear the opinions of other students and coaches and wait for their turn to shine.
#3. Increases Empathy And Compassion

Having to ‘get into character’ will teach your child empathy and compassion for different characters and situations. They may also find themselves performing different roles such as behind the scenes and not always in the limelight which teaches them to see the world from a different perspective.
The teamwork involved in performing arts is unlike that of any other activity. It is not about winning or losing. You learn to work with your peers for a common goal of creating a great performance no matter how big or small your part is.
