Dance teachers/professionals ?

Do you believe BALLET dancers should train in other genres other than ballet? I mean as a way to compliment their ballet technique/training and make them 'more hireable'

    * complement, not compliment

    It’s not about what anyone believes as it is already an important part of ballet training to do so. Serious ballet dancers on track for a ballet career are required to take character dance along with modern dance too. While the bulk of their daily classes (20+ hours a week) will be in ballet technique, once a week they will include a modern and a character class.

    A dancer trained in ballet can pretty much easily pick up any other kind of dance.

    That's entirely their choice.

    Thousands of dancers train at several type of dance and work in Musical Theatre - but that has to be their own decision.
