Have you ever wanted to teach burlesque?

From Nicole Carlin...

Burlesque Dance Teachers Required

POP Fizz Burlesque is looking to recruit motivated, creative and charismatic teachers for a new dance venture opening in Philadelphia early 2010. POP Fizz Burlesque organizes dance lessons for Bachelorette, birthday and hen parties (mostly Burlesque, but occasionally other styles of dance).

POP Fizz is looking for:
Passionate, charismatic, and energetic women to teach 2-4hr Burlesque classes for Bachelorette parties in or near Philadelphia on some weekends. This is a part-time position and bookings are not guaranteed by POP Fizz Burlesque. As a booking comes into the office, POP Fizz teachers will be notified and will have the option to accept or decline the booking. POP Fizz teachers are paid $20-25/hr depending on booking.

Previous dance experience or training, or a strong interest/love for dancing (Burlesque experience is not necessary, but would be an extra bonus when applying)
Ideally some teaching experience would be desirable, but also not essential for the right candidate
Preferred-- Driving license and car
Honest and dependable
Must be able to work weekends, as bookings will be for Saturdays mostly (and some Sundays)
This position is as an independent contractor, so applicants must have the ability to work independently (you will be required to pay and complete your own taxes, as well as acquiring public liability insurance. )
