Benefits of performing arts
Entertainment is an obvious aspect of performing arts, yet there are numerous health benefits that can be gained from participating and ‘playing’ in a performing arts program. The element of ‘play’ in performing arts allows participants to be creative. Creativity supports the development to think outside the box while gaining confidence and trust. Play can lead to laughter, which is recognized to reduce stress. Flexibility, coordination, and balance are attained through movement, which is an aspect of each program. Performing arts programs help develop skills used to focus the mind and the body by using imagination.
These individuals will not only experience the joy of a performing art, the benefits of the program are vast. Self esteem, team work, cognitive, motor, language, social and emotional development are many of the benefits an individual can experience and adapt for a better quality of life.
