Q:

What is the salary of a Boston Celtics dancer?

A:

According to the Christian Science Monitor, most NBA cheerleaders are not salaried workers, but are paid $50 to $150 per game, depending on the organization. The Boston Celtics organization does not publicize the salaries paid to the Celtics dancers.

Although game appearances do not add up to a living wage for Boston Celtics dancers or most other NBA cheerleaders, many dancers supplement their income with robust fees for non-game appearances at team events, for which their hourly wage is considerably higher, as Sports Illustrated reports. Most Boston Celtics dancers have full-time jobs or are students and balance those responsibilities with their work as part of the Celtics organization.

Low wages for NFL cheerleaders have gained national attention due to a 2014 lawsuit against the Oakland Raiders brought by the Raiderettes, that team's squad of cheerleaders.
