Beyond Academics

At DIS we aim at providing holistic education and therefore art and craft are introduced right from the early years. DIS allocates ample time in the academic schedule for students to hone their creative talents. Aptly named “THE ATELIER”, the art workshop is a congenial place where students can work together producing fine pieces of art and craft under the Art Teacher’s supervision

At DIS, children are exposed to a plethora of activities that not only help in their physical growth but also sharpen their mental abilities. Our multipurpose auditorium houses all the indoor activities range from Shuttle badminton, Table tennis, Chess, Scrabble, puzzles to other interesting board games.The benefits of children playing indoors are plenty. Playing indoor games teaches kids to bond with peers. Children also learn to learn to share and play fair. Giving kids an opportunity to play indoors helps children not get cranky if the weather is bad.

Music education greatly enhances students' understanding and achievement in non-musical subjects. At DIS, we understand that the earlier a child comes to grip with music, the more the brain growth will be influenced. We understand that children’s behavioral patterns regarding cooperation, collaboration, and group effort skills improve through musical exposure, effectively done through rhythmic activities. It sets them up for life. Exposing young children to a variety of instruments, choral arrangements, and styles of music enhances their educational experience and fosters their academic, social, and emotional growth. At DIS Music is seen as a vehicle to total learning processes. Specifically, it displays how music is used to help children understand the concepts of listening to and following directions. Music can help teach the concepts in almost any culture. Music encourages self-expression and creativity in young children.

Research shows that dancing boosts a child's self-esteem. Dancing makes children feel good and help them gain confidence in their own abilities thereby benefiting the child's education. More comprehensively, education in the art of dance develops kinesthetic and spatial learning as well as intra and interpersonal skills. Dance classes at DIS, enable children gain the benefits of exercising. They also teach the students coordination, balance, flexibility, stamina, stability, memory and discipline. Dance is simply the refinement of human movement - walking, running, and jumping. We are all experts. There should be no art form more accessible than dance, yet no art is more mystifying in the public imagination.

“While I dance I cannot judge, I cannot hate, I cannot separate myself from life.  I can only be joyful and whole.”- Hans Bos
