Keira’s Answer

Hi, Taylor! There are a number of colleges that offer degrees in dance. There are also a number of ways to have a career related to dance that don’t involve becoming a professional dancer, including performance marketing, tech and production, teaching, medicine, social work... and many other areas I may not be considering!
I would recommend looking into your options and seeing what you think matches your skill set. After that, deciding whether to pursue a BFA or a BA; a BA is usually less intense and may not require an audition.

Keira recommends the following next steps:

Think about what specifically you want to do in the dance field.
Decide what kind of degree you’re looking to obtain.
Continue to find opportunities in high school where you can hone those skills.
