Internship Opportunities

Learn the inner workings of professional dance

Terpsicorps Theatre of Dance is offering university-level dance students an exciting summer internship opportunity! Terpsicorps is seeking interns to assist in the company’s summer season. Interns will learn skills in company and production management for a non-profit dance company, and will assist and shadow artistic director Heather Maloy.

This year Terpsicorps is celebrating its 15th Anniversary and will have an extended season with performances in Asheville, Brevard, and Waynesville, NC. The Terpsicorps Internship will begin May 20th, and end July 20th. Interns will be working Monday through Friday, occasional weekends, and performance weekends for an estimated 40 hours per week. Interns’ duties include daily tasks such as studio prep, note-taking, production research, gala preparation, event promotions, youth outreach and helping during performance week both front of house and backstage.  Company class and all master classes will be available to the interns free of charge. Interns will be hosted by Asheville locals, and are able to explore Asheville’s vibrant art scene and enjoy the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina.

Through this internship, Terpsicorps hopes to provide dance students with a wonderful learning and growing experience which can provide insight and further interest in dance and choreography, directing a company, production leadership and management, outreach through dance, administration in the arts, and related fields. Terpsicorps interns will have the opportunity to engage with and explore many of the possibilities that exist in Dance.

If you are interested in acquiring the skills and experiences that come with the Terpsicorps Internship, or if you have any questions, please email Estelle Woodward Arnal, Managing Director, or call 828-231-8618 for further information.
