ABT Summer Staff: Information and Applications

Do you need a summer job?

Do you like working with teenagers?

Apply for an American Ballet Theatre Summer Intensive Residential Staff position at the Department of Theatre and Dance!

General Information:

The American Ballet Theatre Summer Intensive is a four-week program geared toward talented young dancers age 12-18.

Residential staff members live in the dormitory with the students, chaperone to and from the dorm and classes as well as during classes, and assist and accompany the students in each step of the program, making sure their needs and concerns are met — and most importantly, helping them have a great time!

In addition, residential staff members are invited to participate in selected classes, offering a great opportunity to learn from professional faculty.

Dates of Service:

Program dates: July 6 - 31, 2015

Supervisor dates of service: June 29 - August 8, 2015

Mentor dates of service: July 2 - August 2, 2015

Preferred Qualifications:

We prefer that prospective residential staff members have experience in dance or theatre; however, it is not necessary. Other preferred qualities include knowledge or a major in the fields of kinesiology, recreation and leisure management, education, or management. Past mentors have majored in everything from English and history, to law, communication, and finance. A candidate's experience working with teenagers, enthusiasm, and responsible character are the primary qualifications that we will be looking for in our selection process
