Ballet Companies Requirements






How do ballet levels work? I'm currently in 3rd level ballet in America. What are the requirements to join a company, or go to college for a dance BA?

Hello Ambi-J,

Thank you for your query, it is great to hear from you.

Take a look at thePersonal Development Plan, which give the different stages to join a company and become a professional dancer.

The requirements to join a ballet company can depend on many factors such as height, proportions, performance experience. To join ballet companies, you have to send off your CV and/ or take a ballet audition to be selected by the director.

I expect to go to college for a dance BA will also look for certain entry requirements, such as previous study of dance of a specific standard.

My ballet auditions page will give you further information on what to expect when auditioning for companies.

All the best,

Odette

Hello there!

Thank you, it is great to hear from you!

It is hard to give an accurate answer to how much ballet dancers are paid, but there are many discussions online to follow up.

It is very much reliant on the dancer and the company. A ballet dancers salary varies with different ballet companies, and it very much depends on your rank in the company.

One article says, members of the corps de ballet at the Royal Ballet earn £22,000 a year in their second year at the company. Soloists earn £32,500, with the first soloist getting £39,000. (Source: http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2002/aug/18/wageslaves.careers)

Boston Ballet are said to pay $697.52 per week for a new dancer, and $1300.56 per week for a principal dancer. (http://balletalert.invisionzone.com/index.php?/topic/19842-salaries/)

Another website says the average salary for ballet dancers is £35,000. (Source:http://www.mysalary.co.uk/average-salary/Ballet_Dancer_13530)

It is an interesting topic which would be worth discussing further, so if any other visitors have more to say on this subject, then feel free to comment! ... an open discussion!

There are some quality ballet companies in California, such as San Francisco Ballet and San Jose Ballet. I have written more detailed information on these two companies (follow the link!).

Other ballet companies are California Ballet, Northern California Ballet, The Sacramento Ballet.

All the best,

Odette
