Engineer By Day, Professional Dancer At Night

The PushPULL Dance Company is made up of dancers who have other careers going. “We didn’t become professional dancers because we have multiple interests that have to be satisfied, and the name PushPULL underscores just how torn we are between the love of the arts and our day to day jobs. If you love dance, but you also love science or math or languages or the law — it’s hard to do these on the side. That’s why dance became the hobby, and in my case, engineering became the career. Once the decision had been made, there is also the benefit of knowing you’re going to get the higher paycheque.”
