OPPORTUNITIES & GUIDELINES

STUDENT XERS
As students, between classes, work, and everything else, you may not have time to dedicate 10 to 15 hours as a Company Intern. We appreciate your love for BalletX and your dedication to your education. But now there’s a way to incorporate both, even with your hectic schedule! Rather than spend 10 hours in our office, you’ll take your work to-go and spread the word as you travel around your campus and city.

Volunteer Testimonials
  • From Bryan Park, Volunteer Corps member: I've been volunteering with BalletX for three years. BalletX features innovative, funny, moving, emotional, new choreography, and it's such a thrill to be able to support the company's mission by volunteering. Volunteering with BalletX gives you a behind-the-scenes look while supporting the creation of brand-new choreography.
  • From Elise Lawrence, former Company Intern: Interning for BalletX is a wonderful opportunity, one that I feel rewarded me with encouraging feedback, connections, and a greater understanding of how to run an arts organization. Because BalletX is smaller and independent, I was able to see and learn from the big picture of the company. The administrative staff at BalletX is extremely dedicated to providing a good experience for their interns; it is an excellent company for which I was very fortunate to work!
