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.

Have you ever wanted to write about dance? If you've thought about using the written word to express your passion, you're not alone. Dancers like former Pennsylvania Ballet principal (and frequent DS contributor) Julie Diana know that we can probably write about dance better than someone who has never experienced it in their own body.
To help get you started, the inimitable Wendy Perron will be offering a four day writing course at Gibney 280 in NYC on October 1, 8, 15 and 22 from 5:00–7:00 pm.
You might know Wendy from the zillion dance-related things she's done in her career, including serving as the editor in chief at our sister publication Dance Magazine, performing with the Trisha Brown Company in the 1970s or acting as a general force to be reckoned with in the world of dance criticism.
This class series will offer something for everyone: Do you want to write a grant proposal to help raise money for your company? It'll cover that. What about sprucing up your website? That too. And will you learn skills that could help you get a job at Dance Spirit? Definitely!
