Performing Arts


Learning dance, music and theatre has far-reaching benefits for children and it enhances their ability to think creatively. They learn to interact, collaborate, gain confidence, appreciate diverse cultures and these are skills which will help shape them into well-rounded individuals. We place great emphasis on how we conduct our performing arts programme and we believe that students must always have opportunities to perform.

Professional Training

Through the performing arts, our students learn to communicate and connect with others. This interaction enhances their intellect and they experience different emotions. By performing, they acquire many skills, such as self-discipline, focus, poise, communication and teamwork. We always encourage them to perform as it brings about positive outcomes. 


Performing arts is a means for us to learn the essential skills and to understand diverse points of view. This makes us feel and experience empathy for others. The embodiment, portrayal of character, emotion and interpretation gives us the insight on how dance, music and theatre can be accomplished in different ways.

Top-notch Creativity

To perform is to encourage creativity. It’s also about exploring emotions and expanding imagination. We also do our part and think of new ideas and this keeps it interesting not just for performers but our audience as well.

“Theatre is a way of showing us lives far beyond our own experience; but it lets us into those stories by reflecting our own lives.”
