The SoulDeevas organization is looking for a Color Guard Instructor to help build and lead a brand new Color Guard Team that will include girls ages 12 to 18 in New Jersey. The Color Guard will appear with our current hip-hop majorette and new drum line and will be trained to participate in shows, parades and other local and regional performance opportunities. We will recruit up to 15 girls for this team.
Due to the pandemic, the team will likely work online until it is safe to return to indoor or outdoor practices. The instructor will need to identify one weekday session (any hour between 4pm and 7pm) and will also teach on Saturdays from either 1pm to 3pm or 5pm to 7pm. When we are able to return indoors, we would work from the Rahway YMCA located in the downtown area of Rahway, New Jersey on Saturdays from 4pm to 6pm (the time might change) - but coaches who are not comfortable with an in-person practice are welcomed to remain online.
Responsibilities would be to teach choreography, foundational skills, and flag work to all levels of students from beginner to advanced; choreograph and produce routines for parades, special events and activities as required; working with the Director and other instructors to identify uniform and supply needs. Candidates with marching band, independent, high school, and college experience(s) are welcomed. Experience in color guard, dance performance or related field is required.
Interested candidates should please reach out and detail their relevant experience. We are gearing towards a January start.
