Teach with ZoomDance

ZoomDance is an action adventure story telling movement program offering classes, parties, and camps throughout the year. Children will experience a creative, joyful, movement-based class in which they feel encouraged, supported, and can be their full selves. Teachers will facilitate this by providing dance and movement classes centered around books, stories, and imaginative themes. They will also guide community building amongst the group, encouraging thoughtfulness about the many people who compose our community and how to care for the people and spaces around us.

We encourage you to visit the CAMP page of our website to learn more about our program, and especially to read “Commitment to Supporting Teachers” and “Social Justice and Our Community”.

 

Location

We work at schools and studios in Philadelphia. Main locations currently are in South Philly, Center City, and Germantown.

 

Schedule

Classes primarily happen weekdays between 9:30-11:30am and 3:30-5pm. Parties are on weekends. There is flexibility to decide how many days/classes each teacher will work each semester.

 

We Offer

  • Training in our unique, attuned, active style of leading young kids
  • All materials needed to lead our classes and parties
  • Independent work environment – once you are fully trained, we are always available for support and questions, but you will travel to schools and lead classes yourself
  • Openness to evolution and growth of our programming, structures, and understandings
  • All time is always paid – meetings, training, classes. Training and meetings are $18/hour, classes are approximately $50/hour (depending on length, consecutive groups, and travel time)
