Performing artists entertain and express through music, dance, and theater. Completing a bachelor's degree in performing arts is not necessary for success as a performer. However, a formal education can enhance a performance artist's skills and provide increased opportunities for performance experience.
Performing artists generally receive some type of formal training, though it may not necessarily be through a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Fine Arts degree program. Some community colleges offer associate's degrees in the performing arts to prepare students for entry into a B.A. or B.F.A. program.​

Performing arts are art forms in which artists use their voices and/or the movements of their bodies, often in relation to other objects, to convey artistic expression—as opposed to, for example, purely visual arts, in which artists use paint/canvas or various materials to create physical or static art objects. Performing arts include a variety of disciplines but all are intended to be performed in front of a live audience. 



Artists who participate in performing arts in front of an audience are called performers. Example of this include actors, comedians, dancers, magicians, circus artists, musicians, and singers. Performing arts are also supported by workers in related fields, such as songwriting, choreography and stagecraft.A performer who excels in acting, singing, and dancing is commonly referred to as a "triple threat". Well-known examples of historical triple threat artists include Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, and Judy Garland. Performers often adapt their appearance, such as with costumes and stage makeup, stage lighting, and sound.
