Are you a college student curious about what goes on behind the scenes at your favorite magazine? You're in luck—because Dance Spirit is searching for an editorial intern for summer 2019!
We'll be accepting applications through March 1. Internships pay an hourly stipend and require a minimum two-day-a-week, onsite commitment in our NYC office from June to August. (We do not provide assistance securing housing.)
If you're interested, please send a cover letter, resumé and two writing samples to Margaret Fuhrer at email@example.com. Be sure to put "Summer Internship Application" in the subject line. All attachments must be formatted as PDFs.
We will interview selected candidates in March in person or by phone, and let candidates know by mid-April if they have been chosen. Please note that we do not accept high school students, or any students under 18, and that we give preference to college juniors and seniors.
How many times have you seen a music video that was so amazing that you and your friends wanted to recreate it? And how many times have you actually spent the time and effort to learn the choreography and actually film it? TBH, we've all been inspired by a catchy tune that's paired with some great choreo and cool cinematography. Some of us may even have actual footage of such embarrassing attempts buried deep in the archives of our phones. But four girls from Thailand, did what most of us mere mortals only dream about. They flawlessly recreated one of their favorite band's music videos—and broke the internet in the process.
More studio time = more improvement? Not always, according to Roman Zhurbin, American Ballet Theatre soloist and certified personal trainer. "It's absolutely necessary to take rest days so your body can reset and you stay motivated," says Zhurbin. "Seven days a week of hard training is just unhealthy." What is healthy: letting your body recover from a jam-packed dance schedule so you can give your best possible performance.
