Founded in 1914, Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle is one of only three arts colleges in the nation that offers baccalaureate degrees (BFA and BM) in both the performing and visual arts. It also offers multiple public programs and extension courses. One of the oldest arts and education institutions on the West Coast, the College has been at the center of the development of artistic life in Seattle for more than a century and its alumni can be found working in almost every arts organization in the city. Cornish is accredited by the Northwest Commission of Colleges and Universities and the National Association of Schools of Art and Design.
The Dance Department of Cornish College of the Arts seeks an outstanding teaching artist to join its dynamic department. The ideal candidate will contribute their expertise in somatics, inclusive practice, and culturally responsive pedagogy to the ongoing process of curriculum revision while being adept at teaching across the undergraduate curriculum.

The mission of Cornish is to provide students aspiring to become practicing artists with an educational program of the highest possible quality, in an environment that nurtures creativity and intellectual curiosity, while preparing them to contribute to society as artists, citizens, and innovators. Cornish realizes this mission by offering baccalaureate studies in the performing and visual arts and by serving as a focal point in the community for public presentation, artistic criticism, participation and discussion of the arts.
Our programs provide depth and breadth of training, freedom to experiment, and the space to develop a unique creative identity.
