Ballet Talk for Dancers

Professionals and competitions


Recommended Posts

I recently made an instagram to follow some ballet dancers. The younger dancers I followed are really incredible, get into the top summer intensives, and place well in competitions. I was just wondering if most professional dancers have competed, or get to a company through competition.

While there some professionals who have entered competitions, I would not say that it is most. There are no known stats on that, but if you read company bios I think you will find that not a high percentage did. Even if they did enter at some point in their training, most did not get their jobs that way.

This thread will be interesting to you:



I know it is several pages long, but I think you will find that there are very few if any professional jobs gained directly from a comp.
