Performing Arts Careers??Watch
My parents don't approve (typical Asian parents I guess), as my dad is convinced performers get paid pennies, or something? Idk
I know it's a really really tough industry to go into, and the competition is immense, but I can't imagine myself doing much else. Definitely not an office job.
My backup plan is to become a performing arts teacher, but I haven't looked into that at all and have no idea what kind of qualifications are needed.
Advice (on anything)??
Btw my GCSEs are the core subjects (maths, 2 English, 3 sciences), plus Latin, dance, drama, music.
As for the industry I would say networking is a big part of it so make sure you attend open classes and volunteer at local theatres and things like that (for e.g. https://becktheatre.org.uk/Online/wo...B-1EF2EF95B36F)
Also join local acting/dance/singing classes or a performing arts saturday school to help with technique, confidence as well as networking.
Just remember a lot of people in the performing arts industy didnt even go to performing arts college, and the good thing about it is that it caters for all ages
