Part-time Dance teacher

Do you have a passion for teaching children to dance?

We’re looking for a new part-time dance teacher at Dancercise (based at LCDC Studios in Musselburgh) to join our friendly, enthusiastic team as a vital member of our teaching staff.

This new and exciting role will involve teaching multiple age groups across multiple genres of dance, including ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop and commercial. We are looking for an experienced qualified teacher with a BA in dance or an accredited dance teachers qualification, with 3+ years experience.

At Dancercise, everyone is welcome. We create a world where young people are free to truly express themselves through dance, no matter their ability or capability. We believe all students can achieve what their hearts desire and we support them every step of the way.

We not only nurture our students, but also our staff, creating an inclusive environment that cares for each individual and provides a place for everyone to thrive.

Through our world-class dance tuition, we watch as our dancers grow in confidence each week as they become the best version of themselves – and most importantly have fun! We watch as friendships blossom and they find a sense of belonging each week at our welcoming and accessible studio space.
