Dance Teachers (Online & On-Site) Needed at The Stage School

The Stage School is currently seeking qualified Dance instructors for our upcoming spring session.

The instructors will teach dance to children ages 6-16 and serve as the choreographers for our spring productions.

At The Stage School, all students study drama, singing, and dance. Students are grouped by age with limited class sizes.

We primarily focus on jazz and modern dance techniques, with an overall emphasis on musical theater.

Class times: 2 PM – 5 PM each week
