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.


Resume and cover letters are required. The cover letter must include the interest, the precise dates/times/hours available and whether or not this is for academic credit. After an initial review of the applications, selected candidates will be contacted for an interview.

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. 

The happiness in dancing on stage is reflected in this precious little dancer's eyes and body.  Arms open, lights aglow, feet planted firmly on the stage, basking joyfully from a successful performance. This is the feeling we have as we anticipate returning to the stage this October with the premiere of Carlos Agudelo's, The Wizard of Oz. Ballet Spartanburg and its Board of Trustees and staff will monitor and adjust all health and safety precautions as directed by the CDC. We are ready to dance. We are ready to see our audience. We are ready.

Thank you for your continued love and support for 55 years. Onto our 56th season we go! Now follow the yellow brick road and grab your SEASON TICKETS TODAY!
