Week Eight: Your Dream Job.
This one could be a very straight forward answer for someone on a very planned out career path, however for me; there are so many options and I’m at a point in which I don’t want to close any doors on any opportunities that may be within my reach.
As most of you probably know I have spent nearly my entire life dancing, however it probably wasn’t until I was about 13 in which I decided I wanted a career in it. When I was younger I never really understood the concept or the idea of being able to be paid and dance as your ‘job’, and not just as a hobby (that’s also what a lot of people are still unclear on too).
Now there are so many jobs that you can actually do as a dancer which is why it’s not just a straight forward answer, and instead of pigeon holing myself to one style of dance, meaning only giving myself the chance to get minimal jobs, I compiled a list of dance jobs that I’d love to do if given the opportunity.
I actually wrote this list (*edited for this post) in another blog post back in November 2018 called ‘I don’t know what I want‘ so please take a chance to read that blog post too.
- Tour with an Artist (Pop).
- West End Show.
- Music Videos.
- Award Show Dancer e.g. BRIT Awards.
- Be a part of a Contemporary Company.
- Cruise Ship Performer.
- Dancer on a TV Show e.g. X Factor
As you can see I don’t have one dream job but I know I just want to accomplish the most I can do, create incredible memories and travel the world, all doing what I love best and being paid to do. Dance.
What is your dream job? How close are you to achieving it?
