How did you come to Core Dance?
I found out about Core Dance and the internship opportunity through my school’s job search engine. I was interested in learning about production management and working with a performing arts organization, different from theatre, that was close to my college. I got an interview and was offered the internship shortly afterward.
What is your favorite part about working here?
My favorite part about working at Core is the fact that I have gotten to work with almost everyone in the office and therefore been exposed to the other jobs involved with maintaining an arts organization and putting on performances. Something else that I have enjoyed is the fact I have gotten to do office work as well as hands-on tasks in the studio. While shadowing Sharon, I believe that I have gotten a good understanding of what being a production manager entails and I think that it could be a job possibility for me in the future.
What is one of your favorite memories of your time here so far?
One of my favorite memories of my time here is when I went to the performance of Patton’s piece. I loved the dance and the performance as a whole. I got to see the final product of some of the behind scenes elements that were talked about in the office as well as in the rehearsal that I attended. It was also nice to see the staff all together at the performance. I appreciate the company culture because it is very understanding and supportive, and I have felt that throughout all of my time here.
