The British School of Guangzhou is excited to announce the creation of The Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Programme.
This bespoke programme will combine Nord Anglia Education’s (NAE) commitment to providing a premium education for students in its 31 schools around the world with more than 100 years of performing arts education expertise from the world-renowned performing arts conservatory, The Juilliard School, New York.
Welcoming the announcement, Principal of The British School of Guangzhou, Mr. Mark Thomas said: “We are very excited for our students and staff to have the honour of working with such a prestigious organisation as The Juilliard School. At The British School of Guangzhou, we have always placed great emphasis on a broad and creative curriculum and believe that this opportunity sets us apart from other international schools across China. In my opinion, this will make The British School of Guangzhou the school of choice for anyone with an interest in music or the performing arts.”
Developed by Juilliard in collaboration with Nord Anglia Education, the program seeks to inspire and equip Nord Anglia Education students with the skills, curiosity and cultural literacy to engage with the performing arts throughout their lives. The Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Program will begin in September 2015 at 10 Nord Anglia Education schools around the world, including The British School of Guangzhou, China. It is expected to expand to educate more than 20,000 students aged 3 to 18 at Nord Anglia Education’s 31 international schools by September 2017.
