Career Outlook*

Overall employment of dancers and choreographers is projected to grow 4 percent from 2016 to 2026, slower than the average for all occupations. A continued interest in dance and in pop culture may provide opportunities in dance schools and in venues outside of dance companies. However, dancers and choreographers face intense competition, and the number of applicants is expected to vastly exceed the number of job openings.

The median hourly wage for choreographers was $23.19 in May 2016.

The median hourly wage for dancers was $13.74 in May 2016.
