Music has great value. Music is a language. It is the sound of the human spirit.
Dance has great value. It is the movement of the human spirit.
Music is one of our human intelligences. Dance involves our bodily-kinesthetic intelligence. Both provide ways to know and express ourselves.
The arts are learned best by listening, singing, playing, and moving in developmentally appropriate ways, with significant others and individually.
Arts learning begins at birth and continues throughout life by engaging in a rich artistic environment.
Arts making benefits all aspects of human development.
“A grounding in the arts will help our children to see; to bring a uniquely human perspective to science and technology. In short, it will help them as they grow smarter to also grow wiser.”
– Robert E. Allen – Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, AT&T Corporation
