Dance Teachers Needed
CDance Company for the Arts (located at 6124 Busch Blvd Suite C, Columbus, Ohio 43229) has two great projects to offer OSU dance students. If interested in either of these opportunities, please email Carmen Alston at firstname.lastname@example.org. The first project is/can be year round/quarterly. This would afford a student the opportunity to teach and assist in teaching different styles of dance such as ballet, modern, jazz and tap. The class sessions are held in 10 to 11 week sessions. At times the sessions can be longer, but adjustments will be made for OSU students. The first session takes place from June 7-August 21. This is a summer dance camp, with a lot of inexperienced dancers ranging in ages 6-14 years old. Hours would be 9am until 2pm. Other Sessions include: July 6-August 21 (evenings only) and September 7-TBD. OSU interns will receive both college credit and a stipend of $50 a week.
The second project is a major production called “The Adventures of Pan” – a hip-hop dance musical consisting of 250 to 300 students and about 10 to 13 scenes. Styles of dance include ballet, hip-hop, pop locking and Caribbean. Auditions for this production will be July 10-11, 2010. The production will be the last weekend in February 2011. The responsibility of the teacher assistants (2 or 3) would be to learn the choreography from the visiting artist and keep it flowing until the artist returns (once a month). Rehearsals are held on Fridays, Saturdays and some Sundays. Production week requires more days. Stipend/pay for the production will be $25 a day plus college credit.
The Dance Teacher Summit is committed to promoting emerging choreographers who further the art of dance. The Capezio A.C.E. Award Competition is a great opportunity for choreographers to expose their work to one of the most influential audiences in dance. August 2-4 in New York City. For more information, click here.
