Career Options in Performing Arts
It’s no joke…… Artists are some of the bravest, most passionate people out there
Contrary to popular belief, there are a lot of career options for somebody who wants to work in the arts. Students just need to find their place in the same way as science, commerce, and arts students do.
- On the stage: As an on-stage actor, dancer, or musician.
- In the classroom: As a music, dance, or theatre teacher.
- Behind the curtain: As a stage manager, prop manager, wardrobe technicians, stagehands, and design/tech teams.
- On the set: Working in TV or film.
- At the desk: From production to script writers to nonprofit arts advocates, the arts need as many business-minded artists as performance-minded artists.
