The Culver Academies in Culver, Indiana is seeking a full-time Dance Instructor for the 2019-2020 school year. The qualified candidate should have at least a Bachelor’s degree and have experience teaching various styles of dance to all levels of students - beginning through advanced - in both a group setting and in a private lesson format. Included in Culver’s dance curriculum is Dance for Athletes, a unique opportunity to teach non- dancers to provide greater body awareness and flexibility. The qualified candidate should bring enthusiasm and expertise to these classes. Creating choreography for Dancevision, Culver’s performing dance group, is expected as the group prepares for two uniquely different concert performances annually and recreational performances throughout the year. Candidates will have a working knowledge of costume construction, design, and lighting.
Our students have high expectations for their education, and they demand that their teachers be positive, energetic, motivating and supremely compassionate examples of what a servant leader must be in all that he or she does. Since Culver is a secondary level boarding school, supervisory and mentoring opportunities outside dance with students will be expected, as is designated by the department chair, Dean of Faculty, and Head of School.
Culver Academies places a premium on a teaching and learning culture in which faculty routinely talk about practice, observe each other in the practice of teaching, create curriculum together, and teach each other what they know about teaching and learning. Professional development is available for all instructors and is born from goals set by individual teachers and goals established within the fine arts department. Opportunities include traditional off-campus workshops and conferences, graduate work, research with students or colleagues, faculty-developed curriculum projects, and regularly scheduled on-campus teacher forums for learning support, educational technology, and culture.
The Culver Academies offers competitive salary and benefits packages and is an Equal Opportunity Employer. More information about the teaching and learning environment at Culver can be found at https://www.culver.org/about/careers-at-culver. Interested candidates should complete the inquiry form.
