Danspace Project is currently looking to hire one Box Office Manager to begin January 2018.
Danspace Project’s mission is to present new work in dance, support a diverse range of choreographers in developing their work, encourage experimentation, and connect artists
to audiences. In the curatorial process, a balance of perspectives is sought across considerations of issues of race, sexuality, class, and ethnicity; aesthetic investigations across dance histories, genres and forms; and relevance to DSP’s institutional history and memory. Danspace Project’s long-held commitment to developing and presenting new work, and to taking risks by supporting emerging artists, ensures a constant flow of new artistic ideas that all members of the staff are asked to engage in and support.
The Box Office Manager is a part-time, seasonal (Sept – June) position. It is a shared, shift-based position for three employees. Shifts are set based on the performance schedule pending mutual agreement between Danspace and the Box Office Managers via a scheduling meeting that occurs at the beginning of every season (Fall, Winter and Spring).

- Welcome patrons and sell tickets (including handling cash)
- Work with House Manager and other Danspace staff to help manage waitlist, late seating, and other issues with entry/exit to the house
- Post-show box office reconciliation and clean-up
- The ideal candidate would have experience in box office management, or other hospitality/retail experience involving customer service and handling payments and reconciliations. The ability to be efficient and accurate while maintaining a friendly demeanor is essential to the job.
- Interest and familiarity with Danspace Project’s programming and unique home venue, St. Mark’s Church in the Bowery, is a plus.
- Starting rate $16/hr; 4/hr shift minimum with shifts generally 6p-10p Th/Fr/Sat, average of 4 shifts per month.
