We're looking for passionate educators to teach yoga, movement and dance classes at this year's event. Please note, we have limited space and time for movement workshops and we expect to receive a large volume of applications. Only successful applicants will be contacted.
We're looking for the following:

  1. Educators with training and experience relevant to their workshop topic
  2. Accessible and inclusive workshops and classes that offer unique and innovative perspectives and techniques
  3. Workshops and classes that fit into the ethos and aesthetic of Bass Coast Festival
  4. Workshops that relate to our 2017 theme "SPACE" will be given extra consideration
