University: The Julliard school

Career: Professional Dancing/ Choreographer

I choose The Juilliard school because I love the Fine Arts, But I'm mostly love dancing. Julliard is one of the Best fine arts schools. Also my first Dance teacher graduated from Julliard.

History on the School: The Juilliard School Dance Division was made in 1951 while William Schuman was the President of the school.The first director was Martha Hill. The school was the first Major institution  that focus on both Ballet and Modern dance skills. At the time a revolutionary idea in Dance education.

Campus  Life

Juilliard has developed an extensive network of services to ensure the health and well-being of its students and to nurture their artistic, intellectual, and personal growth. In addition to an extensive network of Health and Counseling Services, these include the Office of Student Affairs, International Advisement Office, Office of Career Services, Office of Educational Outreach, and Office of Academic Support Services.

Some of the events that Julliard does is the Halloween Dance, Chill Out Week, and the Spring Block Party. Students are always welcome to offer suggestions for activities both on and off campus.

Career: Dance/Choregrapher

I was inspired By my first dance teacher to continue Dancing. After she died from cancer I made it my goal to go into Professional dancing then to open my own dance studio and start choreographing.  

Career description

Dancers use movement, gesture and body language to portray a character, story, situation or abstract concept to an audience, usually to the accompaniment of music. This normally involves interpreting the work of a choreographer, although it may sometimes require improvisation. Dancers work in a variety of genres including classical ballet, modern stage dance, contemporary dance, street dance and African or Asian dance. They may perform to a live audience or take part in a recorded performance for television, film or music video. Many dancers follow portfolio careers, combining performance with teaching, choreography or administrative work in a dance company.

Their highest wages, however, are with junior colleges, which pay $36.20 per hour, or $75,300 per year, on average, and elementary and secondary schools at $26.61 per hour, or $55,350 per year. Independent choreographers make the third-highest average salaries of $24.28 per hour, or $50,500 per year.
