Development and Marketing Intern

 Invertigo Dance Theatre is looking for the next great intern to help with an exciting Fall season. Invertigo is a non-profit contemporary dance company with an office in Culver City.  Performances and classes happen across the LA area and this Fall Invertigo will go on a Southern California tour. Invertigo strives to create dance programming that “anybody with a body” can enjoy, including performances, Dancing Through Parkinson’s, and workshops and classes for youth through the Invert/ED program.

We request a commitment of 10-20 hours per week from September through December, with the possibility of extension into 2016.  Work will be based in Invertigo’s Culver City office, with the possibility some occasional travel to run errands, or to performances or class sites.  Work hours will mostly be Monday to Friday between 9am-5pm. A stipend will be paid, with the amount dependent on qualifications and number of hours worked.  We’ll happily work with a school or college to arrange academic credit for the internship.
