Teach Performing Arts in America!

We have lots of amazing Performing Arts Jobs at summer camp for amazing singers, dancers and all round drama people!  Performing arts at summer camp involves everything from singing, dancing and acting, to directing and working with the stage, sound or lights. Theatre jobs abroad are a fantastic way to expand your coaching as well as your performing skills. If you’re equipped with a bag of warmup exercises, engaging techniques and enthusiasm, you’ll be perfect at summer camp!

Alternatively, if you’re more of the backstage kind, there are plenty of roles available for light and sound techs!

Studied performing arts at college or university? Taught children at local clubs, or appeared in shows and plays? Almost every camp in America will run a performing arts program and there are specialist performing arts camps.

Lights, Camera, Action!

Camps are big on shows and performances. There is the possibility you may find yourself at a specialist theatre camp but almost every camp will have some form of drama department. Performing Arts Camps have alumni including Jonah Hill and Adam Levine. In summary, you could be teaching a rising star in your performing arts job!

Big shows and performances are often put on to showcase what campers have learnt over the summer and to showcase their skills.

Non-specialist camps will also have daily or evening activities that will have the children and camp counselors will be involved in. There is also usually a huge ‘end of summer’ show that everyone will also take part in!

Performing Arts at Camp

I was hired at the Dublin job fair. I was lucky enough to be part of the theatre group at camp. We put on two amazing shows and helped out with talent shows, evening activities and big events as well. I’m lucky enough to be going back to camp this year doing the same job that I love. We already have our two shows for the children picked out and I am so excited to get started with it! – Kathy Kearns, Camp IHC
