CIRCUS OF THE KIDS is always in the market for competent, motivated staff to fill intermittent employment needs. If you have any interest in working with us, we invite you to submit an application (see application information below.)
Specifically, we are currently seeking employees for our 2016 tour. We are also looking for a sales person.
WHAT: Circus coaches/circus educators/general employees needed to teach a wide variety of ground and aerial acts as well as execute supporting duties.
REQUIREMENTS: Must be 21 or older, enjoy working with children and willing to work long hours. We are looking for enthusiastic, upbeat, highly motivated non-smokers with excellent employment records. Prior circus, gymnastics, dance and/or teaching experience is helpful but not required.
Although experience is not required, it is preferred. If you do not have these types of work experience but are eager to learn, we will gladly train you. In addition to circus skills coaching duties, which typically involve responsibility for 4-6 acts in the final performance, tasks include loading and unloading show equipment, setting up and tearing down equipment, making and selling souvenirs and refreshments, and assisting with backstage activities.
RESIDENCY PROGRAM DETAILS: We start out by acquainting every child in the school with various types of circus equipment and simple routines through the school's physical education program. Next is the placement audition for kids who want to participate in the performance program. Everyone who auditions gets a part. The next 1-3 weeks (depending on the length of the residency) are taken up with rigorous practice sessions every day after school and on the weekends. All of this leads to a series of command performances the last weekend of our stay. Each staff member coaches a certain number of acts as well as assisting with behind-the-scenes activities (costumes, make-up, rigging, etc.).
COMPENSATION: All staff positions with CIRCUS OF THE KIDS are salaried, contract positions. Salary amounts are based on experience and are for the duration of the contract only. Other benefits include worker's compensation; room, board and transportation to the various performance venues; and payment for half of all transportation costs incurred in reporting to the job and returning home. Health insurance is available for long-term employees.
SUMMER OPPORTUNITIES 2016: We are always seeking certified teachers and college students (minimum age 21) to coach and assist with our summer camp program. This consists of one-week stints from late May through late August at day camps, overnight camps, YMCAs and Jewish Community Centers around the United States. If you meet the qualifications and think you might like to be a part of our creative, energetic team, please get in touch with us.
