Employment Opportunities

UW: Dance Administrator

The UW Department of DANCE is a small, dynamic, and highly productive unit serving  50-65 majors, 75-100 minors, and 1,000 non-majors. The breadth and diversity of our curriculum is enriched by accepting a small cohort of professional DANCErs into a rigorous and innovative, nationally-recognized MFA program.  We produce four substantial concerts each year, in addition to smaller productions and events. We host renowned guests and attract a cadre of part-time lecturers who diversify the faculty and curriculum. Students pursuing the major or minor experience a department that feels intimate – for example, our program is one where we know most students’ names – and values the balance between professional/academic rigor and creative flexibility.

The Administrator must be an enthusiastic supporter of the arts who serves as a collegial advocate in leading and growing this community, particularly in our current work to develop a focus on African and African diasporic DANCE traditions as well as other efforts to become an antiracist department.  A competitive candidate will thrive in a highly collaborative culture, while simultaneously enjoying the leadership role the department relies on to provide structure, strategy, and good humor along the way.
