BFA Acting Program Instructors

The New Group is seeking theater faculty for their undergraduate-level acting studio courses as part of Long Island University (LIU) Brooklyn’s BFA in Acting for Theatre, Film and Television. Courses include Voice and Speech, Movement, and Acting for second and third year BFA students, through our collaboration with the university. 

The commitment would be a weekly 1 or 2-hour class, for either the Fall 2021 or Spring 2022 semesters. Classes are in-person, with safety protocols, barring any changes in city guidelines; but teachers should be ready to pivot to online if necessary. Classes may be held on the LIU Brooklyn campus in downtown Brooklyn or in midtown Manhattan. We are looking for applicants interested in working closely with our team of teachers in creating an imaginative, deep and wide-ranging learning experience, with individualized attention for our diverse and talented students. Applicants should have experience leading undergraduate or graduate courses in the side of the discipline for which they are applying. Positions begin at $100/hour.

To apply, email your cover letter and resume (with “Teaching Positions” in the subject line) to describing your interest, background and qualifications, and attach a teaching resume or CV. Please highlight any undergraduate-level teaching experience and specify your teaching interests and your availability during the 2021-22 academic year.
