Teaching Positions

WhirlyBuds Dance Company seeks Dance instructors

Job Title: Preschool Dance Instructor, Part Time

Company: WhirlyBuds Dance Company
Location: Seattle, WA (Weekly classes are taught at various locations including Phinney, Mountlake Terrace, Northeast Seattle, West Seattle, and Burien. Applicants must be willing to travel throughout the city.)
Start Date: Immediate
Compensation: $30.00 per hour of class taught ($18 per hour during training)

Do you have a passion for dance? Do children bring a smile to your face? Does getting paid in hugs, sequels of delight, and money sound like the best job ever?

WhirlyBuds Dance Company is a creative movement company that caters to the energetic and whimsical preschool crowd, hosting weekly classes at various child care centers throughout the Seattle area. We are looking to immediately hire two part time dance instructors for toddler and preschooler movement classes. The ideal candidate will have a background in both dance and child care. He/She will be a fun, creative, warm, energetic, and encouraging dance instructor.

WhirlyBuds classes are taught on-site at preschools and child care facilities throughout Seattle, so applicants must be willing to travel. One position involves teaching a majority of classes in the West Seattle, White Center, and Burien area. The other position involves teaching a majority of classes in the Ballard, Phinney, Greenwood, Shoreline, and Northeast Seattle neighborhoods. We are currently offering around 6 teaching hours over 2-3 days each week. The hours have the potential to be around 8 hours of classes per week with the option for more growth in the coming months. While most WhirlyBuds classes occur in the morning (9am-12pm), some classes are taught in the afternoon and as after school programs (anywhere in the 1:30-4:30pmtimeframe). Ideally our new team members would be available to teach morning classes 2-3 days a week and afternoon classes 1 day a week.
Is this something you’d be interested in talking more about? If so, we’d love to hear from you. Introduce yourself to us at team@whirlybuds.com and ask for a detailed job description and application.

Spacefinder Seattle

Spacefinder Seattle is a matchmaking tool for artists and artspaces.

Artists: Whether you’re looking for creative maker-spaces such as rehearsal rooms or painting studios, or presentation spaces such as black-box theaters or galleries, or event spaces, or culinary art space, or meeting space, or classrooms, or even raw warehouses or empty storefronts, then you’ve come to the right place.

Venues: Whether you’re full to capacity with rentals and simply want to market your venue for future use, or you’re looking for a new audience of artists and organizations who may not yet know about your spaces, you’ve come to the right place.

Spacefinder Seattle is a database of every rental space in the region (that we know of) that’s available to artists and arts & cultural organizations. It’s a way to discover spaces that might not already be on your radar, it’s a way to cross-pollinate art disciplines (maybe the most appropriate rehearsal space for your project is an artist’s studio?), and it’s a way to help grease the wheels of our regional artspace marketplace.
