CMDC is in the midst of an exciting growth period due to worldwide recognition of HipletTM, Homer Bryant’s fusion of ballet and hip hop. Because of this, CMDC seeks an experienced administrative leader to manage its expanding day-to-day operations. The Managing Director will be responsible for working with the Artistic Director and the Board of Directors to implement plans, and manage the financial operations of the school. This individual should possess the ability and desire to manage an arts organization and work with the broader arts and business communities in Chicago.
The Managing Director is a member of the executive staff along with the Artistic Director and is responsible for leading and assisting with all non-artistic aspects of the CMDC program. There is room for real growth for the organization and within the organization.
The candidate must be well-spoken, comfortable making public presentations and knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the arts and education. He or she must be able to analyze and adapt to situations with funders, donors, school administration, parents, community leaders and staff.
