Elite Dance Cup is expanding in 2023 and is currently accepting resumes for both judges and staff members.
The success of our competition starts with our staff members, who are the face of our competition. Our staff members must be friendly, enthusiastic and professional.
A competition season provides a wonderful opportunity to visit cities across the country, but also requires long hours. All positions require availability to travel Friday morning, with possible Monday return. Team members are responsible for the load in and strike of their position, and may be required, on occasion, to sub or assist with another position. Our goal is to create the best possible experience for our performers and the guests they invite. That experience starts and ends with you.
If you meet the requirements and are interested in joining our team, please send a resume and headshot to firstname.lastname@example.org, indicating the position or positions of interest and your general availability during our 2023 season.
