How much does a ballet dancer make?
The salary of a ballet dancer can vary widely depending on factors such as their level of experience, the company they are working for, and the location of the company. In general, professional ballet dancers may earn a starting salary of around $25,000 to $30,000 per year, while more experienced dancers in top companies can earn well over $100,000 per year. However, it’s important to note that many ballet dancers work long hours and face intense competition for roles, and their earnings may be supplemented by additional income from teaching or performing in other types of dance.
