Application for Assistant Professor Theatre and Dance

Dear Hiring Manager,

As an Adjunct Performing Arts Lecturer and Doctorate of Theater Arts and Performance Studies graduate, I apply with enthusiasm for this opportunity.

I am currently a part-time Adjunct Lecturer at the University of Sunnybank, where I teach undergraduate Theatre Making: Scenography and Technology and Drama in Context. I employ a range of traditional and progressive methodology in the planning and delivery of instruction in physical and virtual settings, with an emphasis on field and experiential learning opportunities whenever possible. 

I see myself as an educator, not just an instructor. I actively promote a flexible, supportive, and dynamic learning environment and encourage students to challenge the material and ask how we can use our knowledge to question the choices we make. I am particularly pleased at the average 97% pass rate my students achieve.

In addition to my lecturing experience and doctorate studies, I hold a Master of Dance Performance. I regularly build upon and complement my theoretical and practical knowledge through field work and by attending professional workshops, conferences, and courses. As well as being a lead performer with the Halliwell Theater Group, I am an avid ballet dancer and teach classes at the Sunnybank Community Center. 

I have enjoyed my time at the University of Sunnybank, and am grateful for the excellent teaching opportunities offered. I now seek a full-time Assistant Professor role that will enable me to deliver stimulating courses to the next generation of performing artists.

Please find attached my curriculum vitae for your consideration. Thank you very much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you regarding next steps. 

Yours sincerely,

Emma Smith
