OPEN CALL PROCESS: LEAD AN ADULT PROGRAM WORKSHOP

Shawl-Anderson Dance Center (SADC)  in Berkeley, CA is now creating an Open Call process for current staff, community members, and visiting artists to pitch ideas for an upcoming adult level workshop in Fall 2022 and Winter 2023. This is a new process for the organization and for programming and is intended to broaden class offerings and hire an expanded roster of teaching artists, both local and visiting.

Pitches are welcome for in-person, online, and hybrid workshops of all levels and styles of dance as well as lecture-based workshops. Past workshops through SADC have included Intro to Modern, Dunham Technique, Gaga, Hip-Hop Fusion, Somatics+Ballet, Bhangra, Drag, and Feldenkrais, to name a few. Workshops can vary - from one afternoon (2 hours in length) to a 6-week session, meeting once a week.

 

Ideas/pitches accepted on a rolling basis

WORK STUDY

 

SADC offers work exchange designed for dancers interested in becoming a vital part of our community and are in need of funding to sustain their dance training. Work study students are an essential contribution to the overall success of the Center. This program is currently on hold. Please reach out to info@shawl-anderson.org with questions.

ONGOING SHIFTS

We offer weekly shifts that primarily involve cleaning the Center: this includes, but is not limited to, sweeping, vacuuming and mopping floors, dusting, cleaning mirrors, wiping down the barres and mats, cleaning bathrooms, etc. 

ONE-OFF SHIFTS

If a weekly shift doesn't work for you, we also offer one-off event/administration shifts throughout the year. 

 

EXCHANGE

The exchange rate is one dance class (or 1-hour rental) for each hour of work. The value of the work exchange is based on current class and rental pricing.

EXPECTATIONS

We'll ask you agree to the following conditions when you commit to a shift:

You'll complete (or get covered) 100% of the shifts you've committed to. If you cannot make your shift due to a schedule conflict, illness or other reason, it is your responsibility to get the shift covered by contacting other work study students and letting desk staff know in a timely manner. This is also beneficial to other students who want to pick up additional hours.  If you experience an unforeseen illness or emergency at the last minute, please call SADC immediately to communicate your absence and they will seek a substitute for the shift.

You will use your accrued classes regularly with the understanding that this program is designed to support students in pursuing training in dance. If you accrue more than 10 classes, your shift may be re-assigned to another student who is able to use their accrued classes regularly. Possible exceptions made.

 

You understand that due to the constant use of this building, 80 hours a week, 7 days a week, your job as a work-study student is very important to the everyday operations of the Center and you take responsibility for being consistent, on time, and thorough. Your work contributes to the overall success of the Center and the quality of our students’ experience dancing at the Center.
