Aging Performing Artists in NYC and LA Metro Areas: Information on Artists IV (2011)

This study of aging performing artists 62+ in the metro areas of LA and NYC complements our earlier study of aging visual artists. In NYC, 219 and in LA, 51 professional actors, dancers, choreographers, musicians and singers were studied, with results showing their resilience, tenacity and lifelong engagement with their art and the public.



(Aging performing artists, whose diverse work includes acting, directing, choreography, and music performance and spans over seven decades, share with us how they are “Still Kicking.”)
