About Second Act
Second Act was founded in 2021 by a team of former dancers looking to create a peer network for professional and personal coaching. Our primary objective is to connect current and former dancers to foster impactful conversations on how to transition from a dance career, apply to college, or discover and thrive in new professional avenues.
We launched our core mentorship program in January 2022, and have since recruited 50+ volunteer mentors representing diverse dance backgrounds and a range of industry focuses. Our program is free of charge, and highly tailored to the individual needs of our participants.
Second Act is a community enabling dancers of all backgrounds to explore and succeed in secondary careers by leveraging their unique strengths and perspective.
The Second Act Team is made up of a group of former pre-professional and professional dancers, now well-established in subsequent careers. We are brought together by a shared purpose to give back to the dance community by creating a platform to advise dancers based on actionable, real-world experience.
