I am researching a career as a dancer. Someone in this career performs dance on stage in front of an audience. Through dancing they tell a story, interpret an idea, or express rhythm and sound by moving to music. They audition for certain roles in many different dance companies, and perform in different shows.

3. In paragraph form, explain the education and training needed for this career. Include all degrees, licenses and certificates needed and the length of time needed to secure the required education and or training.
To become a dancer, you only need your high school diploma, no certification or licensing. You do need a lot of training. There are two ways to get accepted into a dance company. You need to audition or graduate from a school attached to the company or another great company. You should have a lot of experience if you are auditioning so that your chances of getting picked are higher, so you should take as many classes and lessons in dance as possible. When you graduate from a school attached to a dance company they will pick the best few to be a part of that company and refer the other graduates somewhere else.
4. List and explain five skills needed for this career
a. Dancers should have good line. They need to be lined up perfectly, turned out, and looking in the right direction.
