Each summer, ADF offers internships in all areas of arts administration and production. Administrative internships provide hands-on experience for those interested in arts management. Production interns work on the crew for the 18-plus performances of the ADF season featured at Duke University’s Reynolds Industries Theater and Rubenstein Arts Center, and the Durham Performing Arts Center in downtown Durham. All interns work in an invigorating arts environment, as an integral part of the ADF staff. Each intern plays an important role in carrying out the ADF’s mission to serve dance, dancers, choreographers, and artists in related fields.
All interns receive: tickets (interns receive one complimentary ticket to each program in the ADF season, which features over 18 performances by the top dance companies from around the world); academic credit (please contact your university’s career center for this information); and a stipend (each production intern receives a stipend; administrative intern stipends vary). Additionally, Administrative Interns can participate in classes, discussions and intern showcases. Applicants must submit proof of US Citizenship or of lawful alien status which will permit you to work in the United States.
