English term or phrase: performing arts
I am looking for a collective phrase here for things like: dance, theatre, singing, etc.
Agnieszka Kopinska
Polish translation:sztuki sceniczne
Explanation:
Unfortunately, there is no direct eqivalent of the phrase PERFORMING ARTS in the Polish language. Simply because it is hard to translate TO PERFORM directly.

The noun ART = SZTUKA is very general and incorporates sculpture, writing, poetry, painting as well, though these are definitely no performing arts.

I suggest the phrase SZTUKI SCENICZNE that means literally "arts performed on stage."

I think it is pretty close to what you need.

Hope that this helps you out, Agnieszka.
