It is up to you to see your experience objectively and describe it in a compelling fashion. Do not lie, but donít sell yourself short either. In a résumé it is sometimes difficult to tell where humility stops and egotism begins, but being modest can leave you on the outside looking in. There is a fine line between selling yourself and boasting. Choreographers and directors donít want trouble from pushy prima donnas so outright bragging is not good policy. However, make an effort to see your accomplishments objectively, then write a résumé which states your experience and level confidently and with dignity.

Remember a résumé is intended to summarize a dancerís education and experience, and to be submitted in application for a job. What you leave off your résumé is just as important as what you include.

It should logically build upon and support itself to create the impression of intelligence, and imply that you know this profession very well and are committed to dancing your best.
