We are seeking a fantastic and motivated assistant who is passionate about their work, reliable, a committed team player and eager to serve.

How you will fit into our team
The Studio Assistant will use their organizational skills to handle the ‘behind the scenes’ day-to-day running of our busy dance studio.
