Dance Instructor Resume

There are many different career options. A doctor, engineer or scientist is no longer the only respected career option. Now-a-days, there are many career options like dancer, musician, magician, yoga instructor, gym instructor, chef, fashion designer, interior designer, artifacts designer, jewelry designer, etc. People who have a creative instinct, opt for such professions. These professions give them freedom of idea and thought. They work with free spirit, and put to use their imagination and creative skills. Dance is a very popular career option these days. With more than 100 dance forms, the dance lovers have a wide variety to choose from. This has given momentum to the career of a dance instructor. Many opt for dance to pursue their hobby; some opt for it on a professional basis, while some opt for it to stay fit. If you too wish to be a dance instructor, you must know how to write a dance instructor resume, which will help you pursue your dreams.

Dance Instructor will not be judged on academics. Even if you have a very weak academic record, it will not affect your resume. The important thing in a dance resume is the dance forms he/she knows. There are various degrees or certified courses in dance, as well. These will make your resume strong. Besides, experience and actual talent will be valued more, even after having hoards of degrees. The number of shows you performed in, dance styles you excel at, your confidence, stage presence, etc., will be judged. To understand how you would present this in front of the employer, refer to the dance instructor resume given below.
