As leaders within Performing Arts education, we are strongly opposed to the decline of the performing arts within the curriculum and the gap that has been created within a child's education. The Arts not only allow a creative outlet for children and young people, but it also helps improve and establish soft skills helping students in all aspects of life from teamwork, problem solving and public speaking. Skills such as these can help children during their academic life, as well as with their career goals.
