Internships are offered to undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in arts administration and nonprofit organizations. Positions are unpaid and are available throughout the academic year or during the summer.

An internship with Ballet Spartanburg is an opportunity to learn the inner workings of a nonprofit organization. Interns with Ballet Spartanburg serve as integral part of the team assisting the full-time and part-time staff with daily operations as well as long term goals. Active interns in the Fall and the Spring are eligible for complimentary tickets to season performances.

Internships offer valuable experience working in the exciting and energetic atmosphere of a high quality dance school and Company. Ballet Spartanburg will allow one intern per semester. Applicants who are interested may contact their college and apply through an internal internship program. Applicants may also apply through the Ballet Spartanburg office.

Ballet Spartanburg

Education. Outreach. Performance.

The joyful picture above of children from Sidewalk Hope, an inner city ministry in Spartanburg, captures the essence and innocence of joy, hope, and the connections that are created when we dance.  Sidewalk Hope participated in the 2018 So You Think You Can Dance, Spartanburg! community event, a fundraiser in partnership with 10 local organizations. The picture above reflects opportunity, joy, happiness, dance and above all, who we are as an organization: education, outreach and performance.

This year is Ballet Spartanburg's 55th season in your community. Throughout this pandemic, we have remained committed to offering to our community the services of our mission, education, outreach and performance, to the best of our ability in keeping with the guidelines of the CDC and DHEC. We have all seen a dramatic change in our world, how we live, and how we are able to experience the arts. We are resilient and prepared to face a tough and challenging season. Your support is needed now more than ever. 

Our community's words of encouragement, notes, letters, emails, donations and gifts continue to inspire us each day. Contributions allow us to continue creating new choreography, engage in new outreach programs such as our new partnership with the Leap of Dance Academy in Nigeria, Africa, and our commitment to offering the highest quality dance education in our Center for Dance Education.

We look forward to 2021 when our dancers can return safely to the stage and share the beauty of dance. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook and please, stay connected. Stay safe and take care of others.

With immense gratitude-Ballet Spartanburg
