Career Girls Empowerment Lesson Video Series:
Performing Arts Careers (2:04 sec)

Do you love being on stage? Is making it in music, dance, or acting your dream? If you’ve performed for an audience, you know that it can be magical, nerve-wracking, and exciting — sometimes all at the same time! Find out what it’s like to have a career in the performing arts, from the role models in this video who work as dancers, musicians, filmmakers, and more.

It can be a powerful experience to perform for an audience. And when you hear applause at the end of a performance, that means you did your best and the audience appreciated it. Whether you're a dancer, a musician, or an actor (or aspiring to be one!), you know you're doing something right when you have someone's attention. This video takes a closer look at some of the best things about performing for others.

Use the Resources here to learn more about what it's like on both sides of a performance — for the artist and the audience.
