    Hello I am Heather. I run a performing arts school in Dominical, Costa Rica! Come assist me as the director as a teacher of the arts: Ballet, Dance Drama, language arts, Art, Fitness, marketing designer, construction worker, personal assistant ... help me with my workload to impact children and teens changing their life for the better (many of our students are at risk children and teens, we give them a place to come be safe and learn a trade in the arts, creating opportunities for them through the arts to a better life... a place of opportunity)
    Enjoy living and working with my husband and son and I in our very comfortable unique log home on the mountainside and in our beautiful close beach community!
    Eat fresh organic produce, enjoy waterfalls, beaches, wildlife, family life.
    It an amazing place to be and work, and your work will be meaningful and could really impact a child and change their life, our program does not have a lot of funding, your work will very much help our community and on a personal level.

    We look forward to hosting you!
