The Swing Dance Company is starting its new 10 week courses in the Dorset area from September 2018. Our lead instructors are all set to go, but we’re looking for at least one class demonstrator to partner them.
Join the Dorset Team as a Demonstrator
In particular, we’re looking for help with our new Dorchester classes on Fridays from 28th September. This could be a paid role or voluntary role with benefits, depending on a variety of factors. Please get in touch via our contact form so we can discuss.
Classes will also be running in Osmington near Weymouth (Mondays) and Bridport (Thursdays) too, please get in touch if you are interested in assisting with those classes in the future.
An Able Dancer from Any Discipline
This role would suit an able dancer from any dance discipline, whether you have experience in ballet, tap, modern, jive, swing, ballroom or latin it shouldn’t matter. In a pre-term training session you will gain the skills needed to demonstrate on our Absolute Beginners SwingJive course.
You can see the moves that you would be demonstrating on this video
You would be partnering our lead teacher, Nicki, throughout, who is fully trained so there would be no expectations on the demonstrator beyond stepping through the moves in class.
Age & Gender
Please get in touch regardless of age, gender, orientation etc. We would particularly like to reinforce that many of our successful teachers and demonstrators are in the second half of their main careers, or even retired, so age is no barrier. Equally this demonstrator role may provide valuable work experience for student age dancers or those looking to start a career in dance. The minimum age for this role is 16.
More important than these factors is whether you have a fun and friendly character that would fit in with the dancers in our company.
Developing for the future
Interested in teaching classes, or even taking on your own licence to run classes? Starting out as a class demonstrator could be a stepping stone to greater things in the future. Please get in touch via our Contact Form for more details.
