What's this about?
Fancy being the next Ed Sheeran? A session musician for a band or a dancer on a cruise? Maybe you would like to play in a professional orchestra or have a role in a play?
If you have passion, are extremely talented, resilient and good at auditions you could make it as a performer and there are many different ways to show your talents in the performing arts.
There are also supporting roles include vocal coach, music or dance teacher, choreographer, costume designer, hair and makeup artist.
Every performer needs an agent to represent them and there maybe tour managers and promoters too.
Putting on a performance needs performers, a venue but also lighting and sound technicians, stage directors, roadies, caterers, front of house and security staff.
Networking is crucial in this career so making as many contacts as possible is key.
