The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) reports that the number of jobs for dancers and choreographers will grow at an average rate through 2020. However, dancers have the bleakest outlook in this group of employees, with a growth rate of 11 percent. This is due to a continuing decline in interest in traditional dance. Choreographers, on the other hand, will see a faster-than-average growth rate and rise in demand, at 24 percent. The DOL says this is due to the increased interest in popular dance, which will lead to a rise in registration at dance schools and the need for choreographers.
