The American Ballet Theatre Summer Intensive is a four-week program geared toward talented young dancers ages 12-18. Residential staff (mentors and supervisors) live in the university dormitory and assist and accompany the dancers in each step of the program, making sure that their needs and concerns are met - and most importantly, helping them have a great time.
For the 2019 Summer Intensive, the Department of Theatre and Dance is seeking to hire 19 residential mentors and 2 supervisors. These staff members will provide a 24-hour chaperoned experience for the attendees of the Intensive. Staff members receive room and board, the opportunity to attend dance classes with ABT faculty and a stipend.
