SEEKING DYNAMIC TEACHING ARTISTS
BALLROOM BASIX™ (BBX) is hiring dynamic, dedicated “Teaching Artists” to instruct & inspire schoolchildren through noncompetitive “Ballroom, Latin & Line” dancing*!
BALLROOM BASIX USA, Inc. (BBX) is a non-profit arts organization that teaches schoolchildren the “basix” of Ballroom & Latin partner dancing non-competitively — with an emphasis on fun, good manners, caring, and acceptance. We are seeking dynamic individuals for part-time instruction of students in public, charter, and parochial schools.
During the COVID-19 pandemic we wear masks and we are modifying our dances to comply with social distance requirements at school sites. We follow NY State, CDC and NYC requirements for safety. All Teaching Artists must be vaccinated.
Acting, dancing, teaching, and/or performing arts experience— plus a pleasant and vibrant personality — are essential. Memorizing and replicating our script and syllabus is part of the training process.
Requirements include: a flexible daytime schedule between the hours of 8AM and 4PM, and the ability to travel by bus or subway. We expect Teaching Artists and Trainees to be punctual, high energy, charismatic and have the ability to work well with and inspire kids in 3rd – 9th grades. Applicants must have engaging and entertaining personalities and possess a genuine desire to make a difference in the lives of young people by connecting with each of them in a respectful, equitable way with their classmates/peers.
Those selected will receive paid training to learn our methodology. As part of your training, you will assist a seasoned Teaching Artist (TA) for one teaching cycle (3-6 months). Upon completion of the paid training period, a Teaching Artist will be asked to have a contractual commitment of at least two school days per week for a period of one school year, and will be offered compensation commensurate with your experience. To apply, please send a brief cover letter, headshot and resume to info @ ballroombasix.org.
