The performing and creative arts provide children with authentic learning experiences that connect their bodies, minds, and hearts. As a result, these learning experiences become meaningful for them and allow for the further development of cognitive, social, and personal competencies. While learning in other disciplines may often focus on development of a single skill or talent, the performing arts consistently involve and incorporate numerous skills and abilities.
