Survey of professional dance performers in Canada in 2016
Dancer Transition Resource Centre
This report summarizes important characteristics of professional dancers with a performance career in Canada, including their dance work, their demographic and family situation, their working lives and incomes, their health and well-being, as well as their career development and transitions. The analysis is based on a survey of 532 dancers by the Dancer Transition Resource Centre (DTRC) in June 2016. Where appropriate, comparisons are made to similar questions from a DTRC survey in 2005 (which covered dancers’ activities in 2003/04).
