Each season, The Dance Complex
offers several focused internship opportunities for students and young
professionals seeking experience in the arts and arts administration. Interns
will work within a dance community that brings accessible, artistic opportunities
to dancers throughout the greater Boston area. All intern positions are
designed for new professionals to kickstart their career in arts
administration, marketing, programming, event planning, and/or dance
Under the guidance of
experienced professionals, interns are given the necessary tools to thrive in a
fast-paced, constantly-shifting environment. Interns will learn how to
efficiently manage the demands on a successful non-profit and apply their
academic studies to our administration and programming.
In addition to assisting
staff, interns may choose to plan and execute independent projects within the
focus of their internship, formed from their own artistic and academic
interests. Interns are compensated with free classes and rehearsal space at The
Dance Complex to develop and refine their own dance experience.
While each internship has a
varied focus, all internships include assistance with general administrative
responsibilities as well as one 2-3 hour front desk reception shift per week to
ensure that all interns are given the opportunity to connect and interact with
our community members.
Internship applications are
accepted on a rolling basis for the following seasons. Interns must be
available for the duration of at least one full season.
We are currently accepting applications for our Winter/Spring 2019/20 season.
- Fall (Sept - Dec)
- Winter/Spring (Jan - May)
- Summer (June - Aug)
interns will manage and create content for social media outlets, including Instagram, Facebook,
Twitter, Snapchat, and Youtube. Interns will also be in charge of updating our
official blog, “Writing The Dance Complex”, for which they will write features
on students and faculty, share snippets of Dance Complex history, and post
recaps of Dance Complex festivals, performances, and other events.
Interns may also help to draft and edit press releases, project
proposals, and fundraising statements and assist with creating graphics for printed and digital marketing materials.
