Southold Dance Theater located in South Bend, IN, seeks an Executive Director and
Joy of Motion Dance Center, Washington-based, seeks a Director of Operations.
Overviews follow with full postings attached as documents.

Southold Dance Theater, a non-profit ballet school, is a Premiere Classical Ballet School and Home of the Southold Dance Theater Pre-Professional Ballet. Starting in 1973, SDT has grown from an alliance with several students coming together because they shared an important, common bond — their love of dance. Today, housed in the Colfax Cultural Arts Center, a cooperative arts and neighborhood complex with national historic site status, Southold Dance Theater’s curriculum is a balanced combination of leading classical ballet curricula. Southold Dance Theater begins accepting students starting from ages three through seven for our Children’s Division. Beginning at age eight, students follow a structured sequence of training in ballet technique, pointe and variations designed to increase their technical skills, stamina and discipline in accordance with their age and physical development in the Intermediate Division. At the appropriate level of maturity and stamina, students have the opportunity to seek an intense level of study in our Pre-Professional Division. Students wishing to enter this division do so by audition or invitation. Students whose paths lead to non-dance careers still gain immeasurably from our training. They develop self-motivation, self-discipline, poise, grace, physical adroitness and an appreciation for the arts which they will carry with them throughout their lives.

The Executive Director is responsible for making decisions about administration, business issues, finances, fundraising, Board relations, donor relations, publicity, marketing and development while adhering to the artistic vision and focus of Southold Dance Theater (SDT) as well as controlling its resources and expenditures. The Executive Director works collaboratively with the Artistic Director and the Board of Directors to ensure the SDT is guided by its mission and realizes its goals for artistic excellence, community service, education, financial stability, fundraising and audience engagement. The ED reports directly to the Board of Directors, works in close association with the Artistic Director, and supervises staff and faculty. This is a full-time position with variable hours, including nights and weekends.

Joy of Motion Dance Center is a Washington based nonprofit organization with a mission to unite dance professionals, students, and audiences by providing exceptional dance education and performances that stimulate a universal love of dance. The Director of Operations is responsible for financial management, studio and office operations, and human resources. Serving as a member of the senior leadership team, the Director of Operations oversees the day-to-day running of the business functions of the organization, which has 75 employees, three studio locations, and a central office near Dupont Circle.
