Unlocking the Artistic Potential at Manchester
At Manchester International School, we believe in nurturing the holistic development of our students. One of the ways we achieve this is through our comprehensive and dynamic Performing Arts program. Our dedication to providing quality training enables our students to excel in their skills while fostering essential attributes that extend far beyond the stage.
Music and Dance as Fundamental Components
Music and dance play a pivotal role in our curriculum, instilling discipline, endurance, analytical skills, and a sense of community. Our journey with music education begins early, as even our youngest students, starting from age 2 in our kindergarten, are immersed in songs and music integrated throughout their curriculum. As students’ progress from Pre-Kindergarten through Secondary School, the opportunities for music education continue to expand in variety, depth, and difficulty.
This progression allows parents to witness their child's artistic development, giving them insight into their growth throughout the year. Beyond artistic expression, our Performing Arts Department equips students with transferable skills that they can carry into the wider world.
