After Dance - what happens next?

One of my dd's maths teachers used to be a stage manager for a ballet company (another interesting career path), and she told me at a parents' evening that a lot of the dancers studied with the Open University, and she would often find them in the wings with their laptops while waiting to be called for rehearsals.

It must be scary to suddenly find yourself out of a job in your thirties, especially as most ballet dancers don't earn enough to build up any kind of savings, but it's pretty common now for people to switch jobs/ careers quite a bit, so it's perhaps not quite as scary as it perhaps was 20 or so years ago, when people tended to stay in the same job for the whole of their working life
