The Dancing Classrooms program is a social and emotional learning (SEL), arts-in-education program teaching ballroom dance to children during their school day. Our mission is to build social awareness, confidence and self-esteem in children through the practice of social dance.
Dancing Classrooms Teaching Artists are: actors, dancers, and individuals who can move with rhythm; people with excellent interpersonal skills who love kids, are able to work in a team and work in a classroom; people with a generous spirit, sense of humor, sense of language and rhythm, and willingness to travel within the seven-county Twin Cities metro area. Teaching Artists will be required to undergo a background check upon employment. Ballroom dance experience is not necessary.
Training consists of one week of 8-hour training days. Applicants must commit to a ten-week residency of two to five days per week, in up to three different schools during school hours (8 a.m. - 4 p.m.) for at least two sequential semesters.
We encourage applicants of color or multilingual speakers to apply, as we serve a highly diverse student population.
