The performing arts sometimes get pushed to the bottom of the list when it comes to beneficial programs in which students should participate in school. However, sports and STEM programs aren’t the only influential programs in helping develop young people’s skills and talents.
As you consider the right choice for your child, consider some of the following benefits to participating in the performing arts.
- Preparation – Students learn what it means to practice, practice, practice. They have to become responsible for their rehearsal time, dedicated to learning new things and focused on developing their skills.
- Performance – Preparing for a performance, putting their gifts to use in front of an audience and showcasing their talents allows students to build confidence, become closer to one another and develop presentation skills that will follow them for a lifetime.
- Appreciation – Developing our gifts and talents is a great way to praise God. It also edifies other believers. We are all part of a greater story, and the development of our unique giftings brings us all together as confident citizens and ambassadors of faith.
