Hello everyone, I am writing this post to express my interest in becoming employed by an Australian Irish dance school and hope to start working in an industry that has played a huge part of my life. I am 24 years old and originally from Nottingham in the UK, however, I moved to Sydney in 2016 on a working holiday visa and would love to stay permanently. I have had a very successful career in Irish dance winning every major championship including 4 world championship titles under An Coimisiun Le Rinci Gaelacha. After competing to the age of 16, in 2010 I joined Michael Flatley’s production, Lord of the Dance, where I toured globally. Since 2013 I have taken workshops in Boston, USA. During these workshops I choreographed new material for dancers competing at major competitions. I am now looking to work with a dance school that could offer sponsorship and have found the following positions under the skills list on the Australian Government Immigration website; ANZSCO 211112 Dancer or Choreographer ANZSCO 249212 Dancer Teacher (Private Tuition). If sponsorship isn’t an option I would be more than happy to carry out workshops as I am still passionate about continuing my career in Irish dance by helping other dancers. If anyone could help me I would be extremely grateful and I can send any additional information if required.

- Have you had a look at the official website, you know that the 457 visa is about to be scrapped ? Also you didn't move to Australia, you are on a WHV which is very temporary. Your best option would be to marry an Australian. https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/visa-1/457- (NT) -- Good Luck, Mon, Feb 12 2018, 8:46:34"
- I have to agree, its not easy to get a Permanent Resident visa for Australia these days. Unless you qualify for a skilled visa or spouse visa, the chances of getting in based on being a dance teacher is slim at best. Someone posted a link to British Expats - there are some very helpful people on that forum , worth posting for there ! (NT) -- Wishing you luck, Mon, Feb 12 2018, 10:03:27"
- It's difficult and unlikely, not impossible. Dance Teacher (Private Tuition) is an occupation on the list of eligible skilled occupations and can be sponsored by 457 (for now). The reforms are not eliminating skilled visas, just making it more difficult by requiring more industry experience, stricter English requirements, reducing visa length etc. I highly recommend the poster to consult an immigration lawyer though. -- ., Fri, Feb 16 2018, 16:11:05"
