Dancer salaries are competitive and Ballet Austin pays 50% of the premiums for membership in a group health insurance plan. Through a partnership with St. Edward’s University, company members are eligible to receive 36 college credit hours for their professional experience, towards a Bachelor of Arts in Dance and Humanities program.
