Dancer » Overview


Dancers entertain people by expressing ideas and emotions, usually to music, using body movements. There are many different styles of dance; however, the two styles that initially spring to mind when thinking of professional dance are ballet and contemporary dance. Dance companies that specialise in either of these two styles commonly employ dancers who make careers out of dancing. Once employed by a company, dancers work with choreographers or other dancers to develop a show to be performed on stage or on film.
