Three Company Management Interns assist work with staff in the day-to-day management of a multi-venue dance festival and are responsible for a wide variety of logistics associated with company management, campus management, and customer service.
Interns rotate between three assignments throughout the internship: Inside/Out, School, and Company Management.

School responsibilities include working to coordinate student housing, travel arrangements, and assisting with any events or studio needs that may arise. Company Management duties include welcoming visiting artists performing in both indoor theatres, coordinating artist transportation, housing, schedule, and hospitality.
Each rotation also carries ongoing Campus Management responsibilities including ensuring patron comfort and safety, calendar management of spaces/logistics, answering general inquiries, assisting patrons, event logistics, and driving patrons in golf carts. Administrative duties include data entry and maintenance, resource scheduling and tracking, and participation in various research projects. In short, the Company Management Interns work with all departments to make sure every aspect of Festival and campus life runs smoothly.
