Non-Member Referrals Available for All Dancers
Practical and Emotional Support
Moving to a new city, starting a family, establishing a company, going back to school – these are just some of the many transitions dancers may make throughout their dance careers. Our counselling program provides practical guidance, and emotional and psychological support to dancers in transition. Dancers are matched with counsellors who have extensive experience working with performing artists, and who understand that each dancer’s transition is a unique and individual process.
Types of Counselling Offered
Counselling is offered in 6 areas:
Personal Counselling, Career Counselling, Financial Counselling, Legal Counselling, Employability Coaching, Entrepreneurship Coaching.
Dancers meet with counsellors on a one-to-one basis and all counselling sessions are confidential. The types of counselling offered in each geographic region may vary. Contact your regional office or representative to learn about the counselling available in your region. Ask about our counselling subsidy program.
Any dancer seeking counselling may contact the DTRC for a referral.
Dancers who are also DTRC members may access up to 20 hour-long sessions throughout the duration of their membership. To be eligible for funding, members must contact the DTRC before seeing a counsellor. After members have talked about their request with the DTRC, they will be matched with an appropriate counsellor from the DTRC’s roster.
