HOW PERFORMING ARTS BENEFIT MENTAL HEALTH
In today’s high pressure society, our kids are over worked, over stressed and held to overwhelming standards. Social media and 24 hour news have added pressures that prior generations did not have to manage.

The performing arts have been scientifically proven to help kids overcome anxiety, depression, and offer emotional release.
