Job titleAssistant Head of Dance
EmployerFlamingo Chicks CIO
Job Description

Flamingo Chicks runs regular classes and workshops throughout the UK where children explore the art form of ballet. We are passionate about providing an inclusive, fun and rich dance experience for children, by translating a version of ballet that is accessible to all, regardless of ability. For some of our children, they are able to learn technical movement, such as pirouettes or arabesques, alongside exploring the characters and composers. For others, the focus is a sensory experience enriched with colourful props and magical stories. We ensure that all children can experience the physical and wellbeing benefits of movement and being together with friends.

The main purpose of this role is to assist our Head of Dance in supporting the development of Flamingo Chicks by developing creative, fun and immersive class programmes, establishing new relationships and opportunities with schools and community groups, teaching classes and workshops, and providing guidance and support to other dance teachers.

Our teaching team consists of around 12 freelance dance artists, led by our Head of Dance. Our teachers have a range of backgrounds and experiences across styles of dance and the arts, including drama and storytelling, and they each bring unique talents and skills to their work. We are very much a community where we openly support each other, sharing experiences, exploring practice, and always learning.

This role is an invaluable opportunity to be part of a unique inclusive and creative community, developing your skills whilst also supporting Flamingo Chicks to make a positive long-term difference to the lives of disabled children and their families.
