Dancers possess unique skills and unrivaled dedication. Their passion for discovery, innovation and expression is an exceptional strength. In everything we do, we celebrate dancers' unique potential and empower them to continue to affect our world in positive ways.
Career Transition For Dancers is a nonprofit organization that enables dancers to define their career possibilities and develop the skills necessary to excel in a variety of disciplines.
We were founded in 1985 as a visionary initiative of The Actors Fund. Merging back will help us expand our offerings and reach. Read the announcement.
We are supportive, perceptive and resourceful. We believe that strong relationships are built on understanding and that dancers' needs should always come first. Our insightful career counselors focus on dancers' individual needs, and our programs are designed to provide long-term support. Since 1985, we have helped thousands of dancers cultivate their unique abilities and express their potential both on and off the stage.
With offices in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago and a mobile National Outreach Project, we have provided over 62,000 hours of individual and group career counseling, with a dollar value of over $8 million, and awarded $5 million in educational and entrepreneurial support. Outside of the organization's 6,400 active clients, we have helped thousands of dancers take their first steps in discovering rewarding second careers.
