3 Ways Performing Arts Can Benefit Your Child

As we head into 2022, you might be mapping out your family’s activities for the year. Despite what else is happening in the world, you know how important it is to introduce your kids to things that will help them grow as a young person. That’s why enrolling them in a performing arts class might be one of the best things you can do for your kids in 2022.

 

  1. Performance teaches skills they will need later in life

Getting up on stage to perform in a musical might not come up every day when your kids get older, but performing arts classes teach a lot of skills that will help them navigate their adolescent and adult world:

  • Confidence in their abilities

  • Communication skills including speaking and nonverbal skills

  • Interpersonal skills with peers and mentors

  • Trial and error before getting something right

 

  1. Arts classes at school won’t cut it

Your child most likely has music or performing arts classes at school, but those classes won’t be enough if they’re interested in improving their skills and exploring performance as a career. By committing to a weekly schedule with trained professionals and other kids who are interested in performing, your child is immersed in a world where they can truly learn new skills, get important feedback, and fall in love with getting up onstage.

 

  1. Performing arts are a great way to socialize

Socializing is a huge part of your child’s development, and the more opportunities they get to try out their skills, the better. School, sports and clubs are a great way to enrich your child’s social life, but performing arts offer something very unique and different. Performance asks children to be both performers and audience members. They learn to interact with their peers to hear their feedback, build special relationships and support one another.
