It means constantly auditioning to show off your skills, but can also lead to longer-term work as you dance, learn new techniques, check out other acts and work on your skills.If you're not afraid of hard work and still own your childhood dance costumes, becoming a dancer means exploring your creative side and doing something you've always loved.
