The past year presented us with the opportunity to reflect on the importance of art in our cultural world. Before, we only imagined a world without performing arts – but when we were forced to live that experience, we truly understood the invaluable role of live, in-person performances.
As a creative outlet, the performing arts inspire us to tell our stories and express emotions through music, dance, and theatre.
As an educational tool, the performing arts connect children and adults alike to creative opportunities to expand our world view.
