Default Dancers/entertainers

Is there a way to meet the professional dancers or get a "back stage tour"? My daughter will soon be a dance major in college and is just itchin' to get to talk to some of the dancers!

The dancers are very accessable and love to talk to the passengers. Some ships have been doing backstage tours. It mostly depends on the CD. You might express to him/her that a backstage tour would be interesting. We have managed to talk at least three CD's into offering them on a regular basis and they always go over very well and are quite well attended. My wife and I have gotten to know a number of the dancers over the years and they are indeed a very talented and interesting group of people and love to make friends with passengers.

When we cruised in January, one of the dancers conducted a dance class. She taught the passengers a section of one of the numbers they were performing that night.

I believe that the dancers also do double duty, meaning the dance at the shows and have other jobs throughout the ship (one of the main dancers was coordinating at the lifeboat drill and doing some of the bingo stuff)....I am sure they would be glad to talk to your daughter!

I will definitely try to check into this as soon as I can get a word/note to the cruise director or staff. I think that would be so much fun for her. She toured a university recently where a couple of the seniors already had jobs on cruise ships.

The dancers do the Bingo games also. They also hang out at the Disco when crew bar closes-sometime around midnight. Good-Luck! Happy Cruising!

??? which ship did the crew bar close at midnight!!! ??? more like 4am!!

The dancers on my ship were excellent. Apart from Bingo, they have other duties so they're not just sitting around all day. They also assist in Magic shows, do dance classes, run the library, help out greeting guests at emabarkation and guiding guests at meeting points and shore excursions, assist at the art auction, and they usually do the speech at the boat drills.
So yes the dancers are very approachable for guests to speak to,.

hope this helps
