We are seeking our next badass instructor to teach our wild, high-energy dance cardio classes. No fitness experience required. Looking for smart, creative, and full-the-fuck-out dancers. If you know how to bring the party wherever you are, then this is the job for you.
A position as a ((305)) Instructor is the perfect compliment to your performing career. Our classes are fun and lively to teach. You dance, jump, and bring life to the classroom, inspiring non-dancers to move their bodies. Educationally, our extensive training program -- at no cost to you -- also offers a unique foot in the door into the world of fitness that costs trainers thousands of dollars to attain on their own. The hours are consistent and part-time. We are highly supportive of artists and traveling schedules.
Please send a resume and headshot to firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an audition.
The subject line should read “Instructor Audition” and should include your name. The email should contain:
• A brief (one paragraph) description of why you are interested
• Resume attached (pdf preferred)
• Headshot attached (jpeg preferred)
Small group auditions will take place during the day (between 11am and 2pm) on Wednesday, September 28th. Candidates are slotted into 15-minute small group auditions. There is nothing to prepare for the audition other than having taken class in advance. We simply want to see you do basic moves (grapevine, step-touch) in your own style, as if you were leading a class. Please bring sneakers/street shoes and clothes you are comfortable moving in. No costumes, please. If you'd like to get a sense for our look, please check out our video on the homepage. Callbacks will be on Thursday, September, 29th.
Training begins at the beginning of October and it will be a 5-week long intensive training. Training is unpaid. 15-25 hours of weekly commitment. Typically, training will be for 5-6 hours during the week (early AM) and 4 hours on the weekend (Saturday or Sunday afternoons/evenings). You must have a job where you can reasonably take off a few hours of work during the week. If you have concerns about our training schedule but think you are a good fit for our company, please audition regardless. We will find a way to make it work with your schedule if you will contribute something unique to our team. You can expect to begin teaching as a paid instructor on our schedule in the Winter of 2016/2017.
Training will include unique educational workshops with our master instructors and other professionals covering not only the class format, but also motivational and psychological training, anatomy, CPR and marketing and business strategies. We want all instructors to know our vision for the company and learn how to market themselves as their own personal instructor brands.
It is our full intention to hire everyone who completes training as an instructor. Once hired as an instructor, you will begin with 2-3 classes per week. Your class schedule will ramp up over the course of a few months, eventually teaching 5-8 classes per week. There are a number of opportunities at ((305)) including the unique ability to branch into fitness, to work at an exciting start-up with like-minded people, and the chance to inspire others to move their bodies. There is so much to learn, if you are curious and open-minded, this is the right job for you!
