Autism Project Assistants


We are seeking mission-driven and dynamic part-time intern teaching assistants for our Adaptive Dance Programs – specifically The Autism Project.

The teaching assistants are responsible for working with assigned students to facilitate class participation. Teaching assistants must be able to commit to attending all class sessions (assistants can choose which class times fit their schedule), as well as a two-hour training workshop. All classes are held at the Hubbard Street Dance Center (1147 W. Jackson Blvd). Individuals with dance therapy experience or interest are preferred.

Working with the professional dancers and teaching artists of Hubbard Street, aspiring young dancers of all levels will gain an understanding of how their bodies move and how to communicate through dance using improvisation and structured choreographic activities.
