Dancers and Choreographers


Every occupation has certain guidelines and standards under the Department of Labor. The Bureau of Labor Statistics, under the Department of Labor, establish these statistics for those working in the United States. Those interested in becoming a dancer or a choreographer, need to visit the website.

Individuals who are considering a career, regardless of occupation, should take a look at the Department of Labor and the statistics for the occupation of interest. This is a good start point, so that when one is considering a career, they are prepared to negotiate the start pay if working for an employer.

These statistics reveal that there is a growth among dancers and choreographers in the United States. It is expected that these occupations will increase by 2020. The occupation of a dancer will increase by eleven percent, while choreographers will increase by twenty-four.

According to the Bureau of Statistics, most of the traditional dances are losing interest, due to society focusing on the newer trends. There is a high demand for the newer forms of dance; thus, an increase in enrollment of students in dance schools.

Choreographers have a better time finding work at an established institute of education where multiple subjects are taught, versus a dance school. Most schools recruit choreographers to teach at their school.

Dancers typically, as per the statistics, rehearse for long hours, attend promotional events, and audition for dance companies going on tour. Choreographers audition the dancers, teach, assist with lighting, costume, and do other administrative duties such as budgeting. Most choreographers were once professional dancers. Both dancers and choreographers study new and emerging dances.

There is a link to the National Association of Schools of Dance (NASD) where one can find such schools that are accredited by the organization. Certain employers may require that a professional dancer or choreographer have a degree from one of the schools.

Belly dance is not listed under the types of dance under the Department of Labor. Nevertheless, this website www.bls.gov/ooh/entertainment-and-sports/dancers-and-choreographers.htm#tab-2, is a helpful resource. A website www.onetoonline.org, does list belly dancing under the occupations. The requirements of a dancer and choreographer are very similar to that of the Department of Labor.
