Company/Organization: Pentacle


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).

Pentacles Cultivating Leadership in Dance provides an unparalleled opportunity for interns to receive the benefits of a structured internship program, while working intimately with dance artists/choreographers and non-profit organizations.

Participating companies work with interns 10 hours a week over an 8 week period.

Interns, in addition to working directly with their company, attend weekly workshops covering topics in arts administration and career exploration, while gaining access to a network of interns, Pentacle staff, and guest speakers..
