All Performing Art

Most performing arts students decide on their major because of passion rather than the hope of making tons of money. Many end up working in their field, but perhaps not doing the exact job they aspired to. It’s just a fact of life that not everybody is cut out to be a famous actor or concert pianist. There are numerous related jobs, though: artist or theater manager, publicist, producer, choreographer, and technical roles of all kinds. ​The typical performing arts degree is broad enough to give you options once you enter the “real world”, where business trumps imagination a lot of the time. The average salary for performing arts graduates is around $52,000 per year.
