Mr. D's Music Club is a collaborative, arts-based community that brings Teaching Artists and curious kids together to Keep Kids Inspired.

Summer Jobs 2022

Mr. D’s Music Club is a fun, fast-paced, high-energy performing arts camp for kids 8-13 who love the arts but don’t always come to camp with formal training. Mr. D’s gives kids the opportunity to explore the performing arts, take artistic risks and build their confidence along the way. Dance has been an essential component of our ten-year program. Our goal, as it is with all the arts we teach, is to keep it fun and celebrate all styles. As a result, each week of camp is original, fresh, fast-paced, kid-friendly, and fun (but not dumbed down).

Our multi-award-winning camp is in Oakland’s Rockridge neighborhood with easy access to Bart and highways 24 & 13. Parking is available.

We are hiring for Assistant Camp Manager, Dance Teaching Artist, and Art Teaching Artist.

Brief job descriptions are below. Please email info@mrdsmusicclub.com for more detailed information.
