WANT TO WORK WITH US?
At Pivot Pole Studio we are always on the look out for ace, like minded people to come join our Team and help us grow. We are currently looking for Pole Dance instructors to come join us on a part-time freelance basis.
Think this could be you? If you think you'd like to join our Team and contribute to our wonderful community which we've been building since 2018, please read on, and read carefully.
As a Pole Dance Instructor at PPS, it will be your calling and passion to bring the best pole dance training and coaching to cater to a wide range of students. You'll work continuously to promote our Core Values and uphold Pivot Pole Studio's reputation as a place of judgement free movement. Your mission will be to provide nothing less than the best and most professional coaching, helping our clients realised and achieve their goals safely and realistically. As a space that caters to people from all walks of life, we would like to welcome a varied and diverse Team for our students to learn from so our Instructor positions are open to all ages (over 18), gender identities, races, religions and sizes. Pole shouldn't be a one size fits all for our students, so why should it be for our Instructors?
1. Safety Orientated -
You must hold a recognised certification in teaching Pole Dancing/ Fitness (for example, XPERT, Spin City, Discoveries Dance etc). A recognised ETM, Personal Trainer, Yoga, Pilates or Dance Teacher certificate or qualification is also a fantastic addition (but not a necessity). You should have an up to date First Aid Certificate. Since you will be working with us on a Freelance basis, you must also hold your own insurance. As you can tell, we're big into making sure our clients are in safe hands.
2. Technical Skill -
You should have a minimum of 2 years Pole Dance experience. It's important to us that you demonstrate a keen interest in investing time in your own personal skill and technique so you can be a solid example to our clients, and that you understand the realistic journey that a Pole Dance student takes. You should also be able to confidently assess each client's skill and offer suitable progressions/ regressions where needed. This doesn't mean you have to be an advanced Pole Dance champion to work with us; but a solid understanding and mastery of the all important basics of pole that everything else is built upon.
3. Professional Communication Skills -
We expect for you to be polite, courteous and professional at all times with both fellow staff members and clients. We are a business just like any other and do not have time for rudeness or big egos.
