Our experience has shown that using the performing and visual arts as a means of teaching the National Curriculum encourages children’s natural inquisitiveness and promotes their self-esteem as learners.

We enable children to learn at their own level and pace, while simultaneously allowing growth in areas other than that specifically being taught.

We have found that using drama or dance to teach subjects such as science and maths can especially help those children who learn better through pictorial or kinaesthetic methods, who often struggle with conventional teaching techniques. It has also been found to ignite a deeper interest in children who are able learners but have previously found a subject unappealing.

Using drama and dance to teach the National Curriculum enables children to apply what they are learning to a range of different contexts, including real life, thus encouraging them to engage with their schoolwork on a personal level as well as an academic one.
