Podcast on Career Transition for Dancers based on the RCAC study, with Kealan McLaughlin
Two Two Guys Episode 19 — June 6, 2021
“Over the course of the episode, Joan Jeffri and Kealan dive deep into the challenges–both internal and external–a dancer may face as they contemplate and embark on a career change. The reality of this inevitable transition is something most dancers don’t consider until late in their careers, and often only when their careers have come to an abrupt end. With Covid-19 increasing the level of job insecurity across the dance work, finding the courage and developing the tools to prepare for one’s next steps has never been more important.”
About the podcast:
The Two Two Guys podcast will take you deep into the world of ballet through the lens of professional ballet dancers.
Each week, Kealan will interview a fellow dancer and bring you a relaxed yet informative discussion, and a coveted peek into this often secretive art form.
They will explore difficult topics, tell light-hearted stories, and sometimes get derailed and forget what they started talking about in the first place.
If you’re a dance professional, student, hobbyist, or simply interested in the behind-the-scenes of the world of ballet, this podcast is for you.
Kealan has danced around the world, most recently as a principal dancer with the Estonian National Ballet.
