Teach what you love!

The show must go on! As a performing arts instructor, you’ll teach kids to unlock their potential (or how to play the refrain of Shotgun on the guitar). If you spent your childhood as a Billie Barry kid it’s time to take it across the water - use this opportunity to say you spent a summer in New York teaching drama!

Am I the right fit for this job?

A chance to teach and inspire a future generation of Jonah Hill’s – yes he went to camp, what’s not to love! If you’re confident, energetic and have a wide knowledge of performance arts you could be right for the job.

Being the performing arts instructor is all about motivating and inspiring the campers to get involved. We’re looking for people who can plan and deliver daily classes, organise talent shows and who aren’t afraid to make a ‘show’ of themselves – literally.

What does a performing arts instructor do at summer camp?

Whether you work in a traditional camp or specialty arts camp, your camp will have a performing arts programme. They’re looking for enthusiastic counselors who want to share their skill with kids.

Campers love to perform and won’t miss the chance to jump under the spotlight! Morning and afternoons will be spent running fun lessons for a variety of ages and abilities. Lessons can vary from dance, improv, acting, musical theatre, ballet, singing, film writing and everything else in between.

One thing for certain is you’ll be involved in organising the big end of session production where your campers will get to show off their new abilities!

A job that never feels like work

Get the role you're born to do - where you're appreciated, where you have fun and where your loud voice/ embarrassing laugh is actually encouraged!

The chance to learn new skills

And to remember ones you've forgotten you had. Remember when you were convinced you'd be a world-class actress? You've got the green light to wow on that stage.

Lifelong friends from all over the world

Meet your fellow counselors from Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and more... handy if you ever need a place to crash while travelling!

Craic on tap

We mean banter. Of course. It's an experience fuelled by silliness, by acting like a big kid yourself and by having the time of your life. And actually getting paid for it!
