American Ballet Theatre’s Internship Program was established in Fall 2010 with the objective to provide pre-professional nonprofit work experience for university students and recent graduates. Additionally, ABT is committed to expanding ethnic and cultural diversity in classical ballet serving as an avenue to identify arts administrators of color to participate in high-quality training and educational programs. Each year, approximately 30 interns join the ABT family where they are partnered with a mentor and gain valuable work experience in their areas of interest.
Each term, a minimum of 6 internship positions are provided across the organization. In addition to working with their mentors, interns participate in weekly intern meetings that provide professional development and opportunities to hear from leaders within the organization. Interns may also assist with a variety of special events, gaining exposure to important figures in the arts community.
