Dance Passport: support for dancers based in Europe planning to work in another European country



Dancers are highly mobile performers. Without the constraint of language barriers, they are likely to work in many countries throughout their careers and often struggle to make sense of the patchwork of social security, tax and administrative regimes they may have been fallen under in the course of their working lives - making them more vulnerable when it comes to trying to access social rights.



The aim of the Dance Passport is to be a source of support for professional dancers in the context of mobility. It is a union solidarity network for dancers abroad. This scheme allows dancers, who are paid-up union members in their home country, to access local union support and services while working for a short period in any European country where there is a participating union. Thanks to the strong co-operation and partnership between the union members of the International Federation of Actors (FIA), who have joined hands to offer reciprocal support to their members, the Dance Passport promises better information and more comprehensive protection to dancers working in Europe.



Are you a dance planning to spend some time in another European country on a temporary work assignment or simply looking out for job opportunities abroad? If so, the Dance Passport is for you. The Dance Passport has been designed for professional dancers based in Europe and planning to work for a short period in another European country.
