  • ·offer tinkering activities and crafts that engage kids and families,
  • introduce an artwork or performance,
  • share robotics or other projects created by classes or afterschool clubs,

Applicant must be able to teach Modern Dance and Ballet to children ranging from 3 to 12 years of age (jazz and tap are pluses but may not be required at this time). Instructor will be working remotely in a school or community center in the Cincinnati area, and thus must be able to work independently with little or no on-the-job direct supervision. Additionally, instructor must have reliable transportation to and from assigned location. As this is not a traditional studio setting, ideal candidate would have experience teaching in a variety of settings to children from a variety of backgrounds with varying levels of experience.

Dance.

Skills and Experience:
- At least two years teaching experience 
- Teaching in school and community settings often involves behavioral and class management issues that are not as prevalent in traditional studio settings: Must be able to effectively discipline while maintaining an encouraging and supportive environment. 
- Must be able to work with students who have little to no dance experience and who may not yet be familiar with “dance etiquette”.
- Must be able to work remotely and manage class time effectively with little to no on-the-job direct supervision.
