Dear Mr. Orellana,
I am very interested in the Dance Teacher position posted in the Los Angeles Times last Sunday. Having graduated from Julliard as a Dance major, I believe I am well equipped with the skills and training necessary in fulfilling the requirements of this job. (Must specifically address the position desired as well as the website or publication of the job advertisement. You may introduce your past education in this introductory paragraph as well.)

My student teaching experience has allowed me to develop patience, creativity, and the knowledge to perceive students individually. Working with students from the age of 14-18 at Debbie Karat’s Dance Studio helped me to gain those qualities as well as to grow accustomed to education strategies that are beneficial specifically to that age group. (Name qualities that you have gained from past teaching experience. Make sure to relate your experience to the students.)

My passion lies not only in the art of dance, but also in its history. It is this particular aspect of the job description that made this position so appealing to me. Not only will I be able to demonstrate the movements to the students, but also enlighten them on the dance’s roots, which many dancers today are uninformed about. I am especially interested in beginning a dance club, in which students can come together to exchange ideas and thoughts on dance culture. (Explain why this job is appropriate for you and why you are the best candidate for them. What can you bring to the particular department that other applicants might not?)

I would like the opportunity to partake in the description’s stated objective of expanding the dance department at your school. I would appreciate the chance to meet with you. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me by phone at (555) 555-5555 or by email at fdismastro@onpointe.com. (Give contact information.)

Thank you for your consideration. My résumé is attached. I look forward to scheduling an interview where I can talk more about my interests and qualifications. (Express gratitude for their time.)
