The article, drawing from a limited set of data, briefly summarises the changes in the status of the precarious worker in the field of contemporary dance over the last 50 years, starting with the early 1960s, when the first Slovenian dancer was granted the status of "freelance artist". From 1979 and 1989 and after Slovenia's independence, we witness an extraordinary growth of statuses of freelance artists in all fields of art; parallel with this growth, the name of the status of precarious workers in the field of art and culture constantly changes in accordance with the ruling ideology.
