Paid Summer Internship for Teens
Dates: June 29th-Jully 25th
Flyaway’s GIRLFLY Arts and Activism Apprenticeship Program provides a paid summer apprenticeship to young artists, facilitating both dance-making and community–based engagement. We bring together young women for the summer to get hands-on experience in contemporary, site specific and/or aerial dance, earn a summer stipend, create original dances for performance, learn and perform Flyaway’s dance repertory with professional dance artists, research and carry out an activism project and connect with young women across neighborhoods, schools, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. Girlfly participants gain performance and leadership training, mentoring, and cultivated employment skills such as team work, representing oneself, communication, self awareness, self assessment and conflict resolution.
