THE DANCE JOB BOARD established the Dance Job Board where potential employers could search for candidates by posting upcoming auditions, job offers, showcases and teaching positions. Jobs posted on our site are also shared across our network and social media to maximize reach. In addition, dancers can create a free account and post their resume for even more exposure in the job market. 


The dance directory is an online guide to area dance companies, dance schools and studios, dance organizations, venues and rental spaces, health and fitness services for dancers, dance colleges and universities, videographers and photographers, dance apparel and equipment, and freelancers.  Even for those with existing websites and a social media presence, the directory helps to extend their reach to the public across the internet.
