young adults looking to gain invaluable experience in the fields
of arts education and arts administration.
Through project-based activities, interns will assist within a
specific department, and be introduced to the daily functions that
take place in making ABT one of the most prestigious ballet companies
in the world.
Internship opportunities can include supporting the Special Events
department in preparation for major events, assisting with ticketing
and seating requests for major donors in the Development department,
or serving as a Teaching Artist’s assistant for ABT’s
