For some, the mental image of performing arts is being centre stage, jazz hands ablaze and belting out a heartfelt show tune. While this image certainly has its place, much of the potential that performing arts holds in an education setting lies with a different image. An image of collaboration, exploration of ideas and reflection is just as valid and perhaps more helpful when approaching performing arts from a teaching perspective. It is an environment of respect, scaffolded risk-taking and the building of confidence rather than for those only with existing skill or confidence.
