About the Dance Consultancy
Turn Persevere Consulting is committed to improving your dance business’ performance by inspiring you to create more efficiency and streamline operations by client and employee retention, learning planning skills, and achieving your business goals.
There are many different paths to pursue in the world of dance, and not all of them require a person to perform. Many individuals pursue careers in teaching, dance instruction, choreography, directing, exercise fitness, stage management, physical therapy, or operate a business by opening their own dance studio.
Educational Consultation of Dance
To be successful in a dance, a person must cultivate their talent through years of training, practice, physical conditioning, and study the expressive nature of the performing arts. Dancers perform in featured and complementary roles in recitals, concerts, musical theatre, music videos, television, and movies – any venue or format where entertainment in front of a live audience is provided. Like filmmakers who tell a story through carefully crafted imagery, dancers provide a narrative and communicate emotion through physical expression. The field of dance encompasses a wide range of popular styles and genres, including:
- Concert Dance / Performance Dance
- Folk Dance
- Street Dance
- Contemporary Dance etc
The Dance Consultancy was created by Mr Deepak Kumar Taank to support dance in educational settings and to also ensure that dance is a valid and vibrant part of our education. The Dance consultancy aims to support young people, schools, teachers, dancers, choreographers, dance artists and dance companies to achieve high standards of participation, learning and creativity.
Formal Training & Education Options
For many, natural ability and a passion for dance are discovered at a young age, leading to years of practice and experimentation at home, with youth dance companies, in after-school dance programs, with friends in social settings, or in private dance or performing arts school. For those who decide to pursue dance as a career, there are several professional training and traditional post-secondary education options that can help you take your skills to the next level.
Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance (B.F.A)
Although a degree is not a requirement to become a professional dancer, earning a degree from a conservatory of dance, or a college or university fine arts program can help students develop skills, technique, and knowledge that separates them from others in the industry. Artistic training and direction from expert instructors can open the eyes and minds of a dancer to all the choreographic possibilities they will encounter as a professional and broaden their academic prospects through a liberal arts curriculum.
A degree also offers students the opportunity to train together as peers, establish close personal and professional relationships, develop mentor relationships with professors, master their technique, and showcase their talent. Students will participate in performances and events that help them build their portfolio of performance art, and gain exposure with administrators and directors of respected companies worldwide.
Master’s of Fine Arts in Dance
A Master’s of Fine Arts program with a concentration in dance offers students the opportunity to pursue advanced dance theory and independent performance under the guidance of teaching artists. Students are pushed to explore vital aspects of the art as performers, and study dance conceptually, creatively and technically. An MFA in Dance encourages students to broaden their definition of form and performance through a combination of reading, writing, choreographic inquiry, and research. Additionally, students will receive advanced instruction in areas such as stagecraft, music, experiential anatomy, and dance history.
Additional Career Choices for Professional Dancers
Individuals who are educated and experienced in the art of dance have a wide range of career options that may not require them to perform in front of a live audience. Rewarding careers in fields such as education, choreography, theatre production, television, film, fitness, and therapy are abundant. A few of them include:
- Adjunct Faculty
- Community Dance Instructor
- Dance Company Manager
- Performing Arts Teacher
- Yoga Instructor
