OVERVIEW

Waterwell, a civic-minded theater and education company, seeks a Voice and Speech Teaching Artist to join the Waterwell Drama Program, the company’s growing arts education wing.


ABOUT WATERWELL

Founded in 2002, Waterwell is a non-profit, civic-minded theater and education company. Waterwell strives to prove itself a vital presence in the lives of its audience by remaining always responsive: responsive to the events affecting the world at large, responsive to changing modes of expression, and responsive to the individuals attending each performance. Through entertainment and arts education, Waterwell hopes to inspire audiences and students to change their lives and the world in which they live.


Waterwell believes strongly in the power of the arts in youth development as a way to achieve its mission of inspiration and change. Since 2010, the company’s robust educational arm, the Waterwell Drama Program (WDP), has delivered top-quality, year-round, in-school theater training to over 200 NYC public school students each year through a partnership with the Professional Performing Arts School (PPAS). Partnerships with Manhattan Youth and others provide rich, civically-engaged art-making experiences to dozens of additional students each year. WDP programs are for students in middle school and high school.


EQUAL OPPORTUNITY EMPLOYMENT POLICY

Waterwell is committed to creating an inclusive community of mutual respect where anti-racist and anti-oppression principles guide our decision-making and company culture. We are currently evaluating how our stated intentions align with the outcomes created by our decisions and identifying actions that will make those goals a reality in the short-term and long-term. We believe that having a staff of artists, teaching artists, and administrators that is racially equitable and represents a wide range of backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences is essential to fulfilling our mission. Equal employment opportunities are available to all. Applicants from populations underrepresented in the theater field are strongly encouraged to apply. All qualified applications will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, national social or ethnic origin, religion or belief, sex, pregnancy, HIV status, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or gender expression, age, physical mental or sensory disability, veteran status, and family or parental status.


POSITION

Waterwell Drama Program (WDP) is seeking passionate teaching artists dedicated to inspiring creativity, discipline, and collaboration to join the faculty at the Professional Performing Arts School (PPAS). Partnering with PPAS, WDP provides 6th-12th grade students with comprehensive, Artist-as-citizen theater training during in-class hours, 5 days per week.  Strong classroom management skills and experience working with youth required. Classes meet for the full school year, with this position starting in the second semester January 2022 – June 2022. The ideal candidate is interested in long term growth and development in this position.


The Movement curriculum is a core part of the drama curriculum for our students. The scaffolded curriculum provides students the opportunity to learn how to use their bodies as a storytelling and character-building tool. The curriculum seeks to give an overview of different movement techniques including, but not limited to, Contemporary Technique and Composition, Viewpoints, Physical Theater, Neutral Masks, Lecoq, Clown, Devising, and Commedia. Teachers should be passionate about anti-racist theater training techniques and come with a willingness to share their expertise on these approaches as well as continue to learn. The entire program’s curriculum also includes a thread called Artist as Citizen: a focus on civic-minded arts practice for our students to begin to understand how their theater training relates to larger issues facing society.
