A well-rounded education for children should encourage a mix of dance, drama, music, and other arts. It is with this aim that The Performing Arts School of Nigeria/The Studio Abuja, initiated The FCT Interschool Performing Arts Competition – to celebrate and foster the development of the performing arts culture in Nigerian Schools.

The 2015 competition (second edition) was supported by the United Bank of Africa (UBA), Etisalat, and Celebrations Cards and Gifts. The competition took place on the 23rd of April, 2015 at the Ladi Kwali Hall of the Sheraton Hotel and Towers, Abuja.

The event featured a host of Abuja based primary and secondary schools competing in dance, music and drama performances with a chance to win up to N800,000 towards their school’s Performing Arts Department and bragging rights towards next year’s competition.

Apart from the winning prizes, the kids (and some adults) went away with gifts. The Celebrations Gifts and Cards stand were a card making competition was meant to hold was a favourite as everyone wanted one of the many attractions they came with as prizes for the competition that they eventually just gave them out for free with only very few actually making a card. Not to be left out, Etisalat also had a pop quiz session where loads of Etislat branded items were won in addition to Easy Clique Lite Tabs.

The performances themselves were a joy to behold and were duly appreciated by the full house who had come out on a Thursday afternoon to support these kids.

    If only coperate bodies will continue sponsoring child developement activities like this. I grew up dancing cultural dances from the 3 major ethnic groups in Nigeria. The FG schools was really an integration center for different ethnic groups. Now children are stuck with shocki,alingo, azonto. What an absolutely waste of their time. Bravo to the the Organizers it takes a lot to pull of these kind of shows which sponsors in Nigeria are willing to sponsor a modelling competition over something like this. Make it bigger next time ,go national like the Cowbell Mathematics competition.
