Dating a dancer
A tough reality when you date a dancer is that, despite the glamorous outfits, most dancers aren’t exactly rolling in cash.Assuming they’ll actually let you - maybe even if they won’t - offer to pay for things like meals and theatre tickets.
That’s part of their job, or at least what makes the dance fun.
For a fling, you may find some willing partners in the scene.
However, you need to be sure that that they’re OK with a fling, proceed with caution.
It can be awesome to meet someone great at an event overseas – but beware of getting involved without considering what distance means for a more serious relationship. If you do both try to stick it out, will you be able to handle it?
If you’re dating a local, consider the size of your scene. If you’re considering dating someone who you hope to partner, think very carefully about mixing business with pleasure. I’m in this type of relationship, and it works for me. We have to be very careful about setting boundaries between dance work and our personal life.
