Urbanity Dance Internships

Description:

Urbanity is seeking interns for the Spring 2019 semester!


Undergraduate and Graduate students interested in pursuing careers in Arts Administration are encouraged to apply. Interns will play an active, direct, hands-on role in the continued growth and evolution of this dance non-profit organization. Internships are unpaid.


As an Urbanity Dance Intern, you will:

  • Combine artistry, passion, and growth

  • Be a part of a team on the brink of something new

  • Receive on-the-job training

  • Work alongside professional staff both independently and collaboratively

  • Gain hands-on experience in arts administration

  • Immerse yourself in a creative environment

Interns receive:

  • Complimentary dance classes

  • Tickets to performances

  • One free piece of Urbanity merch

  • An eye-opening and sometimes life-changing experience about what happens behind the scenes of a quickly accelerating nonprofit dance organization

Internships are available in Marketing, Development, Finance, Production, Special Event Planning, Facilities Maintenance and Database Management. Although the internships are focused in one of the above categories, opportunities to learn and crossover to other departments exists and often occurs. At the end of the internship, it is our goal that each intern has a general idea of what running a dance company is like from the perspective of each role.


Although Urbanity's internship is unpaid, some colleges offer academic credit for internships, and we can assist in any necessary paperwork to make that possible.
