Intern with us
Dakshina’s internship program offers meaningful, on-the-job experience for college juniors, seniors, graduate students, and recent graduates who are interested in beginning careers in arts management or arts education. We focus mainly on dance, but our program experience is easily applicable across the other art forms or non-profits in general. This semester-long internship offers a wide range of performing arts events and programs that provide a setting for endless career development opportunities. We prefer students who can commit to two semesters. Dakshina also is happy to work with your college or university to help you get college credit and can tailor the internship to meet your course requirements. A limited number of Summer internships are also available if you can commit to a full time schedule during the Summer semester.
During the internship, participants maintain a working portfolio and attend performances and workshops on behalf of Dakshina. Whether the internship is in press, advertising, education, development, or one of the many other areas offered, the experience sets the tone for a future career in arts management. You will also serve as a representative at public meetings and networking events. Finally, you’ll get to work with internationally acclaimed artists in an intimate and meaningful way. We are currently seeking interns in the following areas for the upcoming academic year:
- Arts Management (assist with all aspects of the day-to-day responsibilities of the organization)
- Web & Technology (aid with the development and maintenance of Dakshina website)
- Production (assist with the Company’s production process – including lighting, sound and production schedules)
- Education (work specifically in outreach with k-12 partnerships)
