Hi there!

Would you please share this call for teaching artists with your Bunny Gumbo
community? We’d really appreciate it! FYI we are seeking experienced teachers
first; the dancing can actually be learned.

Thanks for your consideration,

Subject: MHBT Teachers and Assistants!

Dear Danceworks Staff and Faculty,

Would someone you know be a great addition to the Mad Hot Ballroom and Tap (MHBT) team as a lead faculty member or assistant this year?  Danceworks MHBT will be dancing with students grades 4-6 in 50 schools this coming February-May!
Mandatory training sessions for the program begin in December at Danceworks.

Please help us spread the word in classes, with colleagues and in the community when you can!  I attached a Danceworks Outreach Faculty Interest Form here, which can be shared and returned to me.  It’s also helpful when prospective teachers send along their resumes.

I wanted to keep this short and sweet, but if anyone has questions regarding
program specifics I’m happy to be in touch by phone or email.

Thank you for your help—

Rachel Payden
