In the fall 2013, the Department of Dance has formally partnered with six vanguard dance companies in Milwaukee to debut a unique internship program dedicated to providing professional training to our senior students. Internship opportunities vary from administrative positions (such as in marketing, grant writing, production and development) to teaching, outreach and performance.
The Department of Dance considers this apprenticeship program to be a significant opportunity for students to gain practical experience in the dance community and to enrich their dance portfolios and resumes.
The first cohort comprised of BA and BFA students debuted in the 2013-2014 academic year with the following companies:
- Danceworks Performance Company
- Ko-Thi Dance Company
- Oni Dance
- Wild Space Dance Company
- Your Mother Dances
Other Service-Learning or Senior Project Internships for BA students have occurred with the following organizations:
