One School Programs Intern will work with The School staff to coordinate and implement onsite and online career advancement programs involving an international roster artist faculty for 109 advanced and young career dance artists.
The Intern will assist and have project responsibilities in the administrative, financial, and logistical functions needed to successfully deliver unique, in-depth programs occurring simultaneously onsite and online. The intern will work remotely, alongside a staff also primarily working remotely in order to protect the Covid-safe bubble created for the Artist Faculty and dancers. Daily interactions with staff, School Directors, Artist Faculty, and the student body of accomplished dance artists will provide programming, pedagogical, and logistics insights into how meaningful, impactful programs are created and managed.
Intern responsibilities directly assist program staff and artists in focusing on the dancer training, the development of new work and sharing studio work with virtual studio visitors and a Festival public who will attend informal end-of-program, live streamed showings held on the iconic outdoor stage.
Responsibilities will include: creating, assembling, and distributing program information to Artist Faculty, program dancers, and virtual visitors; scheduling, executing, and summarizing program curricular activities; and diligent maintenance of office records, payment reports, correspondence, and data collection. The School Intern will help lead program orientations and coordinate weekly Master Classes, career-building seminars, School showings, and virtual meet-ups for dancers to meet School Sponsors. Many of these activities involve collaborative work with other departments.
Candidates must have an in-depth dance background in one or more genres, a pedagogical interest in dance training and education initiatives, and the computer skills to manage documents, spreadsheets, and conduct internet research. Professional skills needed include being detail-oriented, organized, able to keep track of multiple projects, meet deadlines, work independently and collaboratively, possess strong written, interpersonal, customer service, and problem-solving skills, and the ability to face challenges with a positive attitude. Two writing samples, maximum two pages in length each, are required with the intern application.
