Twirl is expanding class offerings for the 2020-2021 season. Now looking for teaching artists for classes of all ages, skill levels, and styles!

Delaware County, Chester County, and Philadelphia area Dance Teachers/Instructors Wanted

 

Twirl is a quickly growing, non-competition dance studio that is always on the lookout for energetic, fun, qualified teachers who love children and love teaching dance. We offer teaching artists the opportunity to teach dance not only in the studio, but also potential for daytime hours teaching offsite programs in area schools. Background clearances are required and reimbursement is available for candidates that do not already have these clearances.

For our teaching artists Twirl offers:

  • Paid time for teacher meetings.
  • A stipend for working at the recital.
  • Paid snow days (unless a makeup class is necessary due to the class not meeting the minimum number of classes for the year).
  • The potential for teacher training opportunities paid for by Twirl.
  • Possible work teaching offsite dance programs at local schools.

Twirl is now accepting submissions for teaching artists for all styles and levels for the 2020-2021 season. Our goal is to hire instructors for the 2020-2021 season before registration opens in April 2020. Submissions are being considered and reviewed at this time. Please see descriptions below:

  • Acrobatics– All acrobatics instructors must have former acro teaching or gymnastics coaching experience. For teaching these classes Twirl has four 4′ X 12′ Resilite panel mats, two 4′ X 8′ Resilite panel mats, a 4′ X 6′ Mancino wedge mat, and a Mancino cartwheel mat.
  • Hip Hop– Twirl’s hip hop classes are squeaky clean and super family friendly. The style is open to legit or commercial hip hop. We keep choreography and costuming appropriate for students of all ages. Hip hop classes start at age 8.
  • Tap– Looking for instructors with a strong knowledge of tap and the ability to help students fall in love with this art form. Knowledge of musical theatre style tap is a strong plus.

  • Preschool Dance– Twirl’s preschool dance classes are fast-moving, fun, and engaging. Instructors must love preschoolers and will teach a combination of tap, acrobatics, and dance basics to this age group. A general outline of the class structure will be given to these instructors.
