Coach - NJ Girls' Hip-Hop Dance Team
My husband Luis and I created SoulPhamm, a sports and arts program for kids in New York and New Jersey. The goal of SoulPhamm is to create engaging and unique competitive and performing experiences for young people who have had a very difficult and trying year due to the pandemic. In January, 2021 Luis, my partner and very best friend, died suddenly and although the loss hurts, I am compelled to open SoulPhamm and now dedicate it to his memory. But I need help!
I am looking for a volunteer coach to work with our newly developing girls' hip hop majorette dance team from October, 2021 to June, 2022.
The team will be located in Downtown Newark and will practice on Saturdays from 11am to 1pm (starting on October 2nd). We are looking to relocate the team in November to either another location in Newark or to a location in Hudson County (likely Bayonne or Jersey City). If we are unable to find a new location by the end of October, we may need to switch practice time to 3pm to 5pm to remain in our current location.
Coaching experience is NOT required, but "fairly" recent experience with hip-hop dance is required. A sense of humor is also very important. You should be comfortable taking the lead in developing and teaching original choreography and you will have one or two partners to help you lead the team.
Interested candidates should respond telling me about their hip-hop dance and/or majorette experience.
You can learn more about SoulPhamm and Coach Luis at www.soulphamm.org. Thanks for your interest!
