Moving on: career transition of professional dancers in Australia

David Throsby, Virginia Hollister

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Dancers are unique amongst creative artists in terms of the brevity of their professional careers — most dancers are obliged to withdraw from active performance during their thirties or forties — and the issues relating to career change for dancers are some of the most important that these artists are likely to face in their entire lives. This report is the Australian component of a major international research project to examine problems and prospects for career transition amongst professional dancers.
