As dancers, we are strong, artistic, talented, and bendy beyond belief. We create the vision that choreographers ask of us all while feeling our feels and throwing our bodies around. Always remember, dance is not meant to hurt you and cause injuries, but you have to put in additional effort outside of the classroom, or outside of just the classes you want to take. If your studio offers them, take the conditioning class and seek more knowledge about how your body works.
Because Hip Hop dancing is such a competitive job market, the wages of Hip Hop Dancers vary. They can make a little more than minimum wage or make up to $30 an hour or more. Based on recent information, the average wage is about $18 an hour.
On average US-based professional dancers can expect to earn about $24.50 an hour. However, this statistic begins to change drastically once you consider different types of dancers, different markets, and different dance careers.
