arts are equally important. Dance, drama, art, music and craft are an integral part of
the child’s holistic development. Performing arts have a number of benefits, some of
which are:

experience new ways of thinking.

stress is reduced if children involve themselves in creative activities. They feel
calmer and more relaxed.

more understanding to their perspectives.

4. Reduced risk of mental disorders – One in every ten children are being
diagnosed with mental health disorders and as per research engaging in
performing arts greatly reduces this risk.

each other and teachers.
