Abstract

Athletics and performing arts are commonly seen as polar opposite components of a school’s curriculum. Funding must be split between the two in a way that provides the necessary tools and facilities for both programs. How much is given depends not only on the revenue and publicity that it brings but also on the participation levels of the student body. In most institutional settings, athletics are favored over performing arts. In this paper, the effects that each have on students both in school and later in life will be examined. From the evidence found, it is decided that a combination of both athletics and performing arts should be provided in a student’s life. In order to do so, institutions must implement new educational program ideas such as STEAM. This addition to the program will provide different programs that foster creativity within students.
