Dance Instructors

Work Environment

The work environment for dance instructors varies based on their employer. For example, instructors who are employed by private dance studios might be required to work at night and on weekends, when most students have time to take classes. At colleges and universities, dance professors may only teach two or three classes a semester, but spend many hours getting ready for classes, preparing assessments of student work, and handling departmental duties. Most get summers off, but many find work as part-time dance instructors. Most dance instructors find their work environments to be intellectually stimulating and rewarding as they watch their students grow into skilled and talented dancers under their tutelage. Actual work settings can range from dance studios, to gymnasiums, to dance halls, to classrooms. Some travel may be required to accompany students to dance competitions.
