River Valley Dance Academy in Chaska is looking to add to their staff beginning summer or fall for year round teaching opportunities in the following areas: Broadway Jazz, Contemporary Jazz, Lyrical, Dance Team/Competition Jazz. Potential for multiple hires depending on genre, strength, and availability. RVDA has proven to be a strong arts based program in its 18th year serving the southwest metro. The studio is a full service dance education program with a strong ballet and modern emphasis which has resulted in successes for our jazz teams and solo competitors at regional and national competitions. RVDA has successfully placed students in professional and semi-professional theatre opportunities throughout the metro. Students have also gone on to summer intensives at the Rock, Pacific Northwest Ballet, Joffrey, Alvin Ailey, Paul Taylor, and the IBC. We currently have alumi studying dance at Marymount, the Joffrey Jazz Contemporary Program, UND, Stevens Point, MSU, and U of MN. We shy away from the recreation/competition approach, but prefer a primary dance curriculum for our youngest dancers, and a progressive leveled program for all of our students (recreational, classical, competitive). Our current staff of twelve offers primary dance, ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, lyrical, modern, conditioning, acro, hip hop, musical theatre, vocal coaching, and accessible dance programming for our adaptive dancers. As few as two or as many as eighteen hours could be available for the right candidate(s). Competitive wages based on education and experience. Diversity encouraged.
