We learn best when our minds, bodies and emotions are engaged simultaneously. By participating in the Performing Arts we engage and connect more deeply with the world around us, with ourselves and with others.
Social media and screen culture play a very dominant role in the lives of our young people, often to the detriment of their interpersonal skills, social confidence and communication skills.
