2dds Posted October 5, 2006 Report Share Posted October 5, 2006 I know sometimes dancers supplement their salaries while dancing with some income from teaching. I also know some dancers also earn money by teaching ballet after their performing careers end. What I have no clue about is what amounts of money we are talking about here. I imagine teachers are also paid based on their experience, qualifications, and what a particular market will bear, but I don't have any idea of what hard figures would be. Does salary for some open classes sometimes (or always) depend on the number of students who attend class? If this is too intrusive, I apologize. I mean no disrespect, and I know it can be rude to ask about salary, especially because we (fortunately since they bring so much expertise) have many teachers on BT4D. I am just wondering as it's so hard to make a living wage, and retirement can come so quickly in the notoriously short professional dance career, I am curious about just how much teaching may help to balance the books.
