We are seeking a Circus Arts teacher, for our Arts, Ecology, and Circus camp, July 10th – 15th, in Rutherford County, NC. This day camp serves children ages 8 to 13, running from 9 am to 2 pm, Mon – Fri, and gathers family and friends for a performance on Saturday. The teaching artist would be expected to lead three 45 minute classes each day, for no more than 10 children at a time. There are camp counselors present to handle unruly behavior and support the children’s focus.
We are interested in a teacher who can teach hard skills while also nurturing an empowering and respectful environment for the campers. This is a great opportunity to develop teaching experience, grow your network, and retreat to a lovely natural setting amidst a hospitable community.
We’d love for our campers to receive instruction in:
- partner acrobatics
- acro yoga
- aerial arts (if you have materials)
- spinning & flow arts
- clowning, etc.
This is in service to a small town and rural population with few opportunities for youth. We hope to expand programs for youth in the future.
We are proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer. Interested candidates can email a resume and/ or cover letter (with reference to past experience) to: [email protected] The application deadline is May 15th, though we will fill the position sooner if we find the right candidate.
