Dancer Job Description

A dancer is a musician with a unique talent for creating and performing beautiful, moving, musical works.

Dancers are masters of their artistic medium.

They produce their art through movement, using their bodies, voices, and musical instruments.

Dancers are the musicians of the stage and concert hall.

In 1981, the National Endowment for the Arts defined the dancer as an artist who combines creative movement, instrumental music, and/or singing, to express ideas and feelings through performance and choreography, and who enters into a mutually and personally satisfying artistic relationship with other performers.
