Dance Teachers Wanted!


Passion and Performance is an adult-only dance studio.  We focus on a fun environment for all bodies and identities to learn how to dance and get the opportunity to perform.  We are looking for choreographers starting in January 2020.  If hired you will have paid training on dance instruction as well as choreography for film and stage. We are willing to work with new choreographers provided the necessary dance experience and training is there.

During the pandemic, we are looking for choreographers to instruct workshops as well as participating as one of the choreographers for our productions (based on experience).  When live entertainment is a possibility again, we will transition back to stage shows, of which we produce 4-7 per year.

A note on salary:  While our class sizes are limited due to the pandemic, we will be offering compensation of $20/hour (non-negotiable). Once we are able to increase our capacity again, the hourly rate will increase for all instructors. The increased rate will be determined by performance and experience/certifications.  Availability during evenings and weekends are a requirement.


Types of dance and fitness we are looking for:


  • Lyrical and Contemporary
  • Jazz
  • Hip Hop
  • Burlesque (must have burlesque performance experience)
  • Cabaret Jazz/ Musical Theatre
  • Erotic Dance
  • Various workshop opportunities for new genres and fun styles.


Please send in your resume by Friday, November 13th, 2020. The top three applicants for each class will be required to teach a workshop in late November/ early December to review teaching style and class preparation.


To apply please send your resume and cover letter to with the subject line: Teaching Position.
