Applause New York

Applause New York, a pre-professional youth performing arts studio on the Upper East Side, is seeking an on-camera teacher with a sketch comedy or improv background to join our team. This class culminates in a theatrical screening of all the films made throughout the semester (minimum of 4-6 short films per 15-week semester).

We are seeking a teacher who is fun, energetic, charismatic, eager to work with kids ages 5-14 in creating script ideas, and able to engage them in our fast-paced filmmaking environment. ThinkJackBlackin “School of Rock,” but as a movie director for kids! We need someone who can balance training students in acting for the camera while creating fun, high quality short films in a quick turnaround. Experience in screen/sketch writing a plus, but not mandatory.

Classes are held on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Currently looking to train staff in company’s summer camp program to take over some of the after school classes in the fall, generally for 1-3 hours on select weekdays, between 3-7 p.m. Must be able to commit to the September-January semester with minimal conflicts.

If interested, please submit a headshot, acting resume, work resume, and any comedy or acting reels. If you are a writer, please feel free to submit any written sketches or scripts as well!
