Hyde Square Task Force Dance Programs Coordinator

The Dance Programs Coordinator will oversee all Afro-Latin dance offerings at HSTF, specifically Jóvenes enAcción’s dance team and Learn Through Dance (LTD) program. The coordinator will work as an integral member of the Jóvenes en Acción (JEA) Team. Under the guidance of the Director of Arts and Education Programs, the coordinator’s main responsibility will be to work with 8th-12th grade participants who are part of JEA’s Ritmo en Acción dance team, including fostering a cohesive ensemble of youth ambassadors of Afro-Latin arts in Boston’s Latin Quarter and beyond; cultivating young people’s dance and performance skills; and teaching the cultural history and traditions of various Afro-Latin dance styles. The Coordinator will also oversee dance instruction for LTD, which brings Afro-Latin dance instruction into Boston Public Schools during the school day. Project does not include paid performance opportunities. Background in Afro-Latin dance preferred but not required.
