Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
To be a back up dancer it takes SO much talent!. People audition for DAYS and sometimes they only offer 1 spot!.

Are you a trained dancer!? If not, it will be very hard for you to get work-they expect the best of the best and just having passion for dance doesn't cut it!.

You need to take lots of dance classes in every style you can think of!. Being a versatile dancer is key to getting anywhere in the industry!.

also, most of the people you will be auditioning against have probably already done professional work and have been dancing for most of their lives!.

Sorry to make this sound really harsh-but it really is the truth!.!.!.

I hope this helps :)Www@QuestionHome@Com

well all of those go under hip hop!.
so you should try going to hip hop conventions and getting scholarships that will send you off to california!.

at those conventions you take a class from someone who has experience like that!. for example shane sparks used to teach at urban jamm and my studio used to go to their conventions/competitions and take classes!. now hes on americas best dance crew and sytycd which are the best dance shows on tv to date!.

after fly out to california and start taking a lot of classes!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Well it's a pretty fun job but you will not get paid thousandds and millions of dollars at once it takes along time to get to the top!. i dont think that it is a good job!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
