The purpose of this essay is to compare and contrast the difference of being a dancer from a singer in terms of talents, lifestyle and income. It is not an easy task for performers to go to the stage and perform; it requires a lot of confidence and passion to be able to perform in front of hundreds or even thousands of audience.
Dancers are expressive, through body movements they can easily express their emotions, thoughts and beliefs while singers tend to express their emotions by choosing songs and lyrics that has similarities to what they want to say or express in reality. However, dancers cannot dance without music while singers can sing acoustically without any music. So it is convenient for singers to show their talent in public because it doesn’t require them to be in high energy level like dancers just to be able to dance in large movements.
Dancers are known for their eye catching outfits and costumes; they invest to some good wardrobe because costume is part of their dance routine or choreos, it is necessary for them to show their character as a dancer by dressing up to their personality and character. Singers are more independent in choosing what they want to wear because the audience more often only looks at their stage presence and charisma that will be intensify more by their amazing voice once they perform. In terms of money, dancer’s income often goes to their costume expenses and vitamins.
The hectic schedule of a dancer because of constant rehearsing is risky to their health so having a good lifestyle, vitamins and monthly check up are necessary. Singers earn a lot of money because a singer can sell his/her own album and perform and be popular even if he/she is just a solo singer while it’s hard for a solo dancer to get people’s attention by performing alone. Whether you are a dancer or a singer I think it is not important if you’re earning big or not as long as you are happy doing what you love and giving entertainment to all the people because the joy of being who you really want to be is a blessing that money can never buy.
