Employment Prospects


Dance instructors work for private dance studios, community dance programs, recreational facilities, and elementary and secondary schools. Some work as dance professors at colleges and universities, and others are self-employed, operating their own dance studios or purchasing a dance school franchise (from companies such as the Fred Astaire Dance Studios) or working as a freelance dance instructor for several employers. There are more than 6,000 private dance schools, according to the National Directory of Dance Schools.
