Professional Dancer

Whether in hip-hop, ballet, jazz or other genres, professional dancers often belong to troupes, which either tour the world or hold some residency in a city or venue. The life of a professional dancer requires diligent exercise and constant attention to new choreography in this highly competitive field. As far as education, many dancers — especially for more traditional modes like ballet — study in art school or conservatories.
