Jobs at The Studio

Studio Administrator {Private Lessons, Sessions & Dance}

We’re creatives. We dream. We gather inspired people to accomplish big goals. We begin really, really well. 

But because we’re creative, we forget. We scramble. We attempt organization—but it’s hard for us.

We need someone who takes the creative chaos and puts it on a calendar. Someone who can answer a phone, write a nice looking sentence, and partner with parents about their child’s private lessons. Someone who can manage bookings, someone who loves to schedule, and someone who finds joy in finding the right answer.

We need a list-maker. A schedule architect. A systems creator.

We’re looking for a Studio Administrator to oversee all administrative duties in and around the lesson and dance side of The Studio. Things we’re not good at. Things perhaps you are.
