Happy National Arts in Education Week, Sept 9-15

This week marks the 9th annual National Arts in Education Week, which was established by Congress in 2010 to draw atttention to the impact of arts education programs student success. The Georgia Council for the Arts, a supporter of Atlanta Ballet and the Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Education, is offering access to resources that highlight the benefits of arts education and tips for adopting arts education in local schools and communities through its website.

You can also enter the conversation and share personal stories of the positive impacts arts in education has had on your life and the lives of your children with these hashtags on social media: #ArtsEdGA #ArtsEdWeek #BecauseOfArtsEd

The Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Education (CDE) is proud of its work in the metro-Atlanta area, where it impacts over 23,000 students. The CDE not only emphasizes a commitment to the study of dance, but also a commitment to life skills such as discipline, goal setting, and motivation. Youth who participate in CDE’s programs (such as Centre Dance in-school program, Atlanta Ballet's AileyCamp, and Kids In Step student matinee performances, among others) commonly exhibit better study habits and demonstrate greater personal responsibility in their actions.

Thank you for your continued support of arts education, and please share your story with us on social media!
