What does a performing arts teacher do at camp?
Give them the ol’ razzle dazzle. Performing arts at camp is all about the show. From dance to drama, campers love the chance to jump on stage and step into the spotlight.
As part of the camp’s theatre and performing arts team, you’ll spend most mornings and afternoons running lessons and activities with small groups of campers of varying abilities.
From performing arts summer camps to camps with a strong arts program, you’ll likely be part of a bigger production or two throughout the summer. From an all out musical to a dance competition or talent show, always expect variety!
You should bring energy. Being the performing arts instructor is all about motivating and inspiring the campers to get involved. You need to be a confident teacher and knowledgeable in your niche skill area.
Why should I teach performing arts at camp?
