The Managing Director will provide leadership for the planning and operation of the dance festival and associated events, including support for production management, marketing, fundraising, budgeting, outreach, and administrative functions.

The Managing Director must be bilingual and able to read, write and speak fluent Spanish and English. The position requires a commitment of at least 2 years.
The Managing Director will work closely with the Artistic Director to maintain and develop relationships with Chicanx, Latinx, and Indigenous artists, expand accessibility of the Festival across ability and language, coordinate and manage FLACC’s annual performance series, and oversee the launch of a Festival archive.
The Managing Director is a part-time independent contractor position approximately 10-20 hours a week depending on the demands of the festival at various times of the year. Schedule is flexible.
Pay: $25/hour approximately $14,000 annually. FLACC especially encourages people of color, queer, trans and gender non-conforming people to apply.
¡FLACC! is a platform that provides visibility to Chicanx, Latinx and Indigenous choreographers from the U.S. and Latin America. Our annual showcase seeks to connect and strengthen these communities through multi-media dance performance, education and discourse.
Departing from traditional and folkloric dance forms, FLACC’s culturally nuanced, hybridized and politically charged dance genre brings a refreshing perspective to the contemporary dance sector, igniting conversations with dance-theater enthusiasts and Latinxs internationally. FLACC creates an inclusive space along the “cutting-edge” continuum of classical contemporary dance to conceptual performance art, giving historically marginalized choreographers a welcoming space to present and workshop their art.
In 2021 FLACC will be curating a group of live outdoor performances in October co-hosted with Dance Mission Theater. In November FLACC will present virtual presentations on Zoom and Social Media. FLACC is fiscally sponsored by Dancers' Group.
