StarQuest Dance Competition is a nationwide dance competition, touring to 60+ cities each year and delivering a truly unique experience to young performers. We are looking for motivated, positive, people-oriented leaders to join our touring Road Warrior team!

What POSITIONS are we looking for?

• Video Console & Camera Operator: Each tour has 2 video team members onsite, alternating a few times daily between both of these positions. Camera operation is live, fixed center-house tripod shooting. Strong skills in anticipating quick motion and maintaining consistent composition are a MUST. The Video Console portion includes running a live switcher, playing age-appropriate music videos to entertain the audience, and managing the overall quality of the video recordings, among other tasks. Proactivity, multi-tasking, and confidence under time constraints are KEY.
