Organization: The Baltimore School for the Arts
Job Location: Baltimore, MD
Application Deadline: December 15, 2017

The Baltimore School for the Arts seeks a Dance Department Head to begin in August 2018.

BSA’s Dance Department Head leads a pre-professional dance training program that serves a diverse student body, largely drawn from Baltimore City. BSA’s students are selected through an audition for the dance program, and many are new to intensive dance training.

This person will manage the High School dance program and oversee the dance instruction for TWIGS, our free after-school arts program for 2nd-8th graders. 

The Dance Department Head is responsible organizing the program’s curriculum, schedule and staff. The training ranges from beginning classes for elementary students to upper level classes and productions that involve professional orchestras and masterworks of the dance repertoire. Many graduates of the dance program will be qualified for the most selective post-secondary dance training programs. Mentoring students as they progress is central to this role.

Please send cover letters and resumes to dancesearch@bsfa.org
