Freelance life is the norm for most dancers graduating from vocational dance schools. While freelancing can mean freedom and variety, it can also mean uncertainty, instability and a transient lifestyle.

With an impressive and diverse list of credits between them, Simone Sault, Sarah Soetaert and Matt Flint describe their careers as performers and offer advice for those wanting to follow in their footsteps.

“Visualise. Always work towards whatever it is that puts that fire in your belly. Stay humble, stay focused, stay driven and stay passionate. I have always accepted the moments of doubt and unemployment as part of the deal. Conversely, there is a wonderful freedom in it all, we never suffer from boredom or monotony attached to the nine-to-five jobs out there” advises Simone Sault.
