Hi! My company, Feel the Sound, offers cultural exchange programs through music and dance. We are currently based in Rio de Janeiro, though are expanding in the forthcoming year. We are currently hiring dancers to teach classes in Rio. We are also open to talking with instructors/dancers from other places to prepare for our upcoming expansion. (Especially those in Chile, Peru + Bolivia!)

WhoFeel the Sound is a dance program which influences societies to live at their greatest potential. Using sound and movement, we educate, empower, and expand societies to be their best self. We are currently based in Rio de Janeiro with the intention to expand within the forthcoming year.
2 parts of the organization:
Cultural immersion -Feel the Sound offers dance classes born and/or practised in Brazil. The organization anticipates growing into other countries in the forthcoming year. Packages of classes are sold to travellers, and classes will be marketed and open for locals to attend. By using music and movement, we are able to share culture and expand awareness. Classes are taught by local artists who are encouraged to bring all their creativity and perspectives to each class.
b) Community connection -Feel the Sound sponsors classes for single mothers. These classes give time to escape any other pressures and responsibilities by falling into the music and movement. Care for children is provided during the hour class, at the class location.
WhatFeel the Sound is recruiting dancers to teach classes for both branches of the organization.
We are recruiting dancers who can prove their skills and knowledge of dance originating in your home country and/or of great passion to you.
We are looking to create a family, a welcoming environment where people want to spend their time. Not just a casual job with no commitment. There is room to grow with the organization and be a leader for the program.
