What career path should i choose to gain credibility in the field of performing arts and arts education?

I currently work at a private performing arts academy as a dance teacher and head of the academic department. I am in charge of creating curricula for the program and supervising the production team to give artistic input in departments such as scenography. I first started as a student in 2019 and then became part of the teaching team in 2020 due to my advanced dance knowledge (I have been dancing professionally for over 10 years), my experience as a dance assistant in the past and the lack of dance teachers at the academy back then. Since then, I have worked my way up the ranks and now have this good position I mentioned at the beginning. However, I don't have a degree in anything, I have been guided, directed and instructed by the director of the academy and she has helped me develop my leadership skills and helped me get to where I am now. I have discovered my passion for leadership in the performing arts and the world of arts education because of her support and belief in me. But the reason I ask this question, regardless of my current professional position, is because I know that this world is primarily driven by the degrees or masters you have, and in order to enhance my professional development and get more opportunities in the artistic and/or academic world, I may need to get one. So with that thought haunting me every day, I've been searching for degrees that will help me to accredit my current work. That being said, the biggest struggle I have been dealing with in the last few weeks, is the lack of information I currently have about careers that might offer what I am interested in and also the lack of flexibility of careers to study online so I can continue to work and keep my expenses as a freelancer. I have found names of interesting careers but they end up being master's degrees and not bachelor's degrees. I would like to know where are those degrees where I can study something related to directing or artistic education that can be achieved online, or in a short period of time in person. Or, I would like to have a chat with someone who can give me other degree options that might interest me as well and add to the skills I already have and acquire new knowledge. I am very interested in learning more of the educational academic world around the arts field, I also like topics related to human behavior, psychology and anatomy, if that helps give a broader context of the type of degree I am looking for. I have talked to mentors, co-workers, professors, colleagues, professional artists, and they have given me good advice on how to further develop my professional skills without a degree, but no one has helped me find detailed information on bachelor's degrees. I am still looking on my own because I know in the end I will be the one making the final decission, but I would really appreciate more detailed information/advice coming from professionals in the field and I think this is a good place to start.

I have to take fine arts at my school, but which should I choose if I want to be a doctor? Does it matter at all?

My school has a fine arts requirement to graduate. I would like to become a doctor and am not very interested in art. What genre of classes are best for my situation? My school offers choir, band, orchestra, theatre arts, visual arts, dance, technical theatre, and art history at various levels and subgenres. Does it even matter that much and should I choose any of them? This is high school, by the way!

Do you need to know how to tap dance in order to be on Broadway ?

Hi! I’m a freshman in High School and my goal is to be on Broadway someday. I have been in performing arts since I was 4, but I’m nowhere near an expert performer. I love to dance and want to get better at it so I can get cast in more shows. However, I hate tap dancing. I tried it this year and I hate it. However, we all have to do things we hate to get to our goals, but is it an essential skill?

where and when do i start? multi-media artist with no direct plan

I'm Jada, hello. Maybe this will make a lot of sense or it will sound terribly cliche. I know where I want to go as an artist, but the reality is that I don't know where to start. My strongest inspiration is my favorite singer-songwriter, Lady Gaga. With certainty, if Gaga weren't one of the best models of how I'd like to act and work via art in a variety of disciplines, I wouldn't pursue my aspirations. But, as an 11th grader in high school, my alternatives are currently rather constrained. I want to be a strong competent worker, however, it seems I can't discover the ability to learn anything new. Even in class, I'm having trouble. I just need some instruction along the road. Although self-teaching has not been effective, I do strive to keep trying for everything. Even though I haven't learned how to make a Resume, it appears that I can here, which is encouraging. Any advice on how to study or learn better depending on my style of learning would be greatly appreciated. Moreover, it would be really helpful if anyone knew of any free resources I could use to either become a professional or develop the necessary skills. Thank you
