Pentacles internship program, Cultivating Leadership in Dance, matches each intern with a dance artist/choreographer or non-profit organization so that they work directly with the artistic director or executive director in the realm of arts administration. This includes marketing, budgeting, event planning, and communications. The internship is 8 weeks long, and each week we meet as a group and have a guest speaker discuss with us one aspect of the arts non-profit world (fundraising, successful social media tactics, budgeting, etc).
