When Sophie Sotsky moved to NYC in 2011, she was fresh out of college and hoping to sustain herself as a dancer and choreographer in the big city. That's when a production internship at New York Live Arts caught her eye. The company, formerly Dance Theatre Workshop, had just merged with the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company and was about to begin its first season at NYLA. It needed interns to help with all the behind-the-scenes technical work that makes a show happen, from running cables to hanging lights to laying marley. Stotsky didn't have experience with any of that, but she was game to learn.
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.
NYC college students and recent grads, listen up! We’ve extended the application deadline for Dance Spirit’s fall internship to September 10. That means you still have time to tell us why you’re the perfect candidate for the coolest job ever with the best editorial staff ever. OK, so we may be a little biased, but we just really like our jobs. And if you’re a hard-working aspiring writer/editor who loves dance, you’ll really like working with us.
