Certificate programs generally focus on a specific, smaller part of a larger discipline, whether academic or professional. They may be offered at a graduate or undergraduate level, full- or part-time, and do not necessarily require prior study of the field.

What is a certificate in performing arts? The broad term “performing arts” encompasses music, theater, and dance, and programs in the performing arts may cover any one of these disciplines. Some possible areas of concentration may include a specific instrument, vocal range, or music style; styles of acting, genres like musical comedy, or audition preparation; or choreography, types of dance, or specific works. In any of these programs, the goal is to help students master a clearly defined body of knowledge or skill set, often with the goal of using that knowledge in performance.

Students in these programs learn to critically evaluate their work, looking for ways to continuously improve. They develop the ability to assess their own skills to decide which roles are best for them. Equally important, they develop a better understanding of their fields to make good decisions about where to find jobs and how to land offers for roles.

Performing arts certificate programs differ enormously, even within the three areas of music, theater, and dance. You should contact programs directly to learn about current tuition costs and whether there are fees.

In the packed fields of music, theater and dance, better preparation and awareness can make all the difference in a person’s career, leading to acting jobs, dance company membership, or a position in a musical ensemble. Awareness and preparation can also assist performers who want to transition into a new role, such as director, ballet master, choreographer, or music teacher. A career as music, dance, or theater critic may also become possible.
