CALL FOR INTERNS – Summer Deadline is April 18th!! 

 

“ I have made connections here that I would not have made otherwise. I am grateful to have participated and would do it all again!”-Intern, Summer 2013

 

“I feel I have a better understanding of the buisness side of dance.”-Intern, Summer 2013

 

“It helped broaden my spectrum of possibilities and avenues of the arts other than strictly performing. It was also a great way to become more connected with the dance community as a whole! “-Intern, Spring 2013


CULTIVATING LEADERSHIP IN DANCE provides an unparalleled opportunity for interns to receive the benefits of a structured internship program, while working intimately with emerging, unique choreographers who could not provide an internship program on their own.

 

Benefits to the participating intern include:

  • Weekly evening workshops on topics in arts administration and career exploration
  • A network of interns working for other dance companies
  • A clear work plan outlining your responsibilities

 

Dance companies will want a commitment of at least 10 hours a week over and eight week period. Work responsibilities include assistance with archival projects, development research, aid with tour management, production preparation, collaboration on website development and other projects specific to the company or choreographer. This is a part-time, unpaid internship; however, college credit can be arranged.

Pentacle is a performing arts service organization with over 35 years of experience working closely with vibrant and diverse dance and performance artists. Pentacle’s Educational Programming has a celebrated history of teaching students about all of the available careers in dance.

 

Qualifications:

  • Strong interest in the performing arts and non-profit administration
  • Strong computer and organizational skills
  • Strong oral and written communication skills
  • Ability to work independently & multi-task

 

If you are interested in participating, please send a Resume,  Cover Letter outlining your interest in arts administration, and Completed Intern Questionnaire to clarissas@pentacle.org
If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact the program director, Clarissa Soto, by email or phone (212)-278-8111 ext. 312

 

Candidates whose interest and availability matches with participating companies will be contacted for an interview. Submissions will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis.
