The Dance Project is now accepting applications for internships for Spring 2014, running January 13-May 9. An ideal intern candidate would be reliable and prompt, with strong verbal and written communication skills, and an interest in working with a community-minded organization.  As you know, Dance Project, Inc. is an organization with three activities: a school, a festival, and a dance company.  Working in this atmosphere provides invaluable experience with the multiple facets of an arts career.

Program Assistance: Assist the Program Director with wide-ranging tasks involved in the administration of a busy non-profit arts organization.  Activities include: coordination and evaluation of the NC Dance Festival tour and Bonus Day event; planning for summer outreach activities; assisting with marketing and communications, particularly online and social media presence.  Intern may also assist with assembling grant applications.  Must have excellent writing and editing skills, be creative, detail-oriented, and work well independently.  Previous experience with social media sites highly preferred. Knowledge of Microsoft Word and Excel required.

Interns are committing to approximately 6 hours per week. In addition to gaining experience, interns may take free dance classes at our school, and, with faculty approval, may apply for academic credit (45 hours of work = 1 credit, 90 hours = 2 credits, and 135 hours = 3 credits).
