What this job is about

Unlike school teachers, dance teachers don't care if you bring a pencil to class – but you will get in trouble for showing up late. As a dance teacher, you're in charge of evaluating dancers, teaching new skills and techniques, as well as doing some choreography work. You might be in charge of scheduling your own classes and recruiting students, so it could require some extra leg work to get started. Perfect for someone with a history in dance and a knack for instructing and leading, it would be up to you to help grow dancers' talents and then showcase them, usually with a recital, performance or awesome airport flash mob.
