About TUTU BALLET ACADEMY
We are a child friendly Ballet Academy with a portfolio of 15 Ballet levels, we also offer, Jazz, Tap, Hip hop & Adult ballet. We use a combination of Vaganova, RAD and other creative methods to train our Ballerinas. Our focus is on developing a love of Ballet first and provide a good experience for children's first exposure to ballet. Our goal is not only to provide safe responsible ballet training to children but to also create well rounded happy dancers who have a good self esteem.

Need a Ballet teacher for the following days and times. This is not an open class, teacher must be flexible to teach our monthly lesson plan fully provided to you by the school. This is a child friendly Ballet Academy with a demographic of mostly recreational children who want to have fun and enjoy the art of ballet. You will be trained in the first 2 weeks into our class format of how we want the classes delivered. Our teaching environment and classes is a very stress free environment which practices not only respect for the teacher but respect for the childs' learning process. Only open minded, child development focused, progressive & child friendly individuals need apply. Lots of opportunity for growth!

Hello!

My name is Caitlin and would love to be considered for this position! I have over 20 Years in Classical Ballet training in various techniques. I currently reside in Palmdale, CA, so I am not too far from Santa Clarita. I have previously been in comapnies, have taught various ages of students, and have been a registrar for a school of the arts in Hampton, Virginia. I look for structure in a teaching setting and believe I could be a perfect fit for your school. Below, I have attached my dance resume. However, should the opportunity arise, I can provide a full professional work resume as well. I am available to start immediately and would love to hear from you at your earliest convenience!

Thank you for your time,
Caitlin
