At Success, non- academic subjects aren't 'extra' but essential.

  • Engage students with a repertoire that centers scholar learning on creating connecting, performing and responding to artistic works within dance
  • Execute movement to demonstrate dance technique and choreography
  • Design and execute professional-quality dance performance opportunities for all scholars
  • Engage in training with school leaders and benefit from targeted, in-the-moment feedback regarding instruction, which accelerates learning and growth

We invite you to apply if you:

  • Have or will receive a Bachelor's degree by Spring 2021;
  • Achieved outstanding academic results;
  • Have professional training in a rigorous dance program or extensive professional performance credits
  • Are passionate about dance and learning

  • Have leadership experience (i.e. leadership position on a club or team; experience overseeing/managing people or organizing activities);

  • Have experience working with a group of children
  • Embody the character traits we value in our ETHOS - Excellence, Teamwork, Humor, Ownership, and making sure our Scholars are top of mind
