Call for Teaching Artists

Redwood City Youth Theatre (RWCYT) is looking for passionate and experienced teaching artists in the fields of theatre (all aspects), music (vocal), and dance for students grades K – 12.

RWCYT is a new hybrid education program between Broadway by the Bay and Dragon Theatre launched in the summer of 2019. We provide training opportunities for students at both introductory and advanced levels to learn life and theatrical skills. All teaching artists report to the Education Director.

Required RWCYT teaching artist skills: organization, punctuality, classroom management, ability to tailor lesson plans to individual student needs and/or abilities. Teachers should be proficient in her/his/their specified fields and able to teach their discipline(s) to designated youth age groups. The expectation is for teaching artists to create their own lesson plans with guidance from the Education Director for program continuity.

Each age group has one workshop scheduled on a Saturday each month from January through May (with some exceptions). We will also be hosting school break programs during Presidents’ Week (Feb. 17 – 21), and two separate weeks in the spring (March 30 – April 3 and April 6 – 10). We will also be hosting our Theatre Arts Academy programming in the summer.

Stipends: For individual workshops, teaching artists are paid at an hourly rate scaled to the age of the class ($30/hr for grades K-5, $35/hr for grades 6-12). For school break programs, full-day (8:30 am – 4:30 pm) instructors are paid a weekly rate of $800. We are dedicated to keeping our programming affordable for our community and offering tuition scholarships to those in need.

  • Brief cover letter including the grade range(s) you feel competent to instruct (K-2, 3-5, 6-12) and contact information
