Why not take it one step further - why limit it to Bards; why not a College
for Performance Arts?

When we generally speak of "Bards" we refer to those who practice bardic arts (AKA performance arts), which, with the exception of dance, typically includes, vocal, instrumental, dramatic, and physical arts.  I much prefer to call myself a bard than a "performance artist". :)  However, some people have a very traditional definition of "bard" and think we're crazy to call ourselves such.  Some people prefer not to call themselves a bard, but prefer a more specialized term (poet, musician, misnstrel, singer, troubador...)
