The Ugly Side to Being a Dancer

If you want to be a dancer you’ll find that it’s a very appealing career. It has a couple of things about it you should know though. This isn’t meant to put you off but so that it doesn’t come as a surprise when these things come around.

Ballet is like marmite. You either hate it or love it. If you go to a dance college to train to be a dancer you’ll probably have to do ballet. And most likely every day you’re there. If you love it that’s great, a dream come true. But if you hate it, well you’ll just have to deal with it because it’s going to help your career!You won’t have a 9-5 job. I don’t think most dancers want a 9 to 5 job but I thought I’d like to be the one to break it to you. You may have regular hours if you’re on a contracted job, 9 – 5 isn’t common though.

You’ll have some very short days of only a few short hours, and also full days and by full I mean from dusk till dawn! So some days you’ll be waking up to be on set at a time when most the world hasn’t woken up yet. Other days you can have as long a lie-in as you want.
