For our purposes here (lifelong learning), the performing arts are forms of human expression that take place in real time. Contrast this with the visual arts where the object of art is created at one point in time, then effectively "frozen" for the appreciation of others in the future. And that's it. I'm not going to go through the mental contortions that are necessary for aligning a definition with traditional academic standards.
