Significant Information: Dancers and Choreographers




  • Many dancers stop performing by their late thirties; however, some remain in the field as choreographers, dance teachers, or artistic directors.
  • Most dancers begin formal training at an early age—between 5 and 15—and many have their first professional audition by age 17 or 18.
  • Dancers and choreographers face intense competition—only the most talented find regular work.
