"My existing teachers are nearing retirement, and have said that they couldn't consider taking on a student teacher in theri own business, and I don't have any other established relationship with other teachers."
Then you will need to find additional teachers and build a relationship with them. Not for the employment prospect, but to provide and continue your training itself through to the professional level. You need to be out and about, plugged into the dance world, not having your horizons confined to a single studio. Think about it this way - even if your current teachers offered you a job, unless you have a wider awareness that would be your only job option!
