Careers in the Dance Industry

The dance industry includes roles and positions that support dance performance, or applications of dance toward other goals. Dancers, choreographers, and technicians may find work in ballet, modern concert settings, music videos, touring shows, or musical theater. They frequently work with regional dance companies or at prestigious dance festivals. Los Angeles and New York City, the two most popular cities for professional dancers, are home to industries that frequently employ dancers: film, television, video, and theater.
