Among the most accomplished performers, where everyone is trained to their physical limits, almost all of the difference between people is considered artistry. One of the most striking outcomes of both the New City and Ohio projects was a change in the cultures of the schools. Academic classroom teachers, parents, and family members were all essential participants, along with artists, students, and arts programming staff. Maintaining arts training through middle school and high school required the support of parents, family members, and others in the community. With music and art teachers spread ever thinner in US schools, most of whom lack even basic dance or theatre instruction, the creative and artistic abilities and interests of many will never be uncovered. The new process involved the classroom teachers in the assessment to see if greater direct awareness of artistic behaviors would alter their perspective on their students’ abilities.
