Here's what this year's interns had to say about their experience:
My experience with DDF was probably the best I could imagine for my MA internship. The whole team has been great with me: very supportive and welcoming so I could feel involved and integrated to the festival setting. I got the chance to see incredible shows, meet dancers, choreographers and many other great people who were working with the festival. I highly benefited from the responsibilities I had at DDF. I have learnt a lot and this has helped me in my research of jobs for next year. I am very grateful to the entire DDF team, and I would recommend this experience to anyone who loves dance, and is interested in project management and production. Furthermore you will get a great human experience full of laugh and joy! Thanks again DDF!
Anna Le Grix de la Salle (2018 Programme & Events Assistant)
My time with Dublin Dance Festival was without a doubt the most valuable experience of my undergraduate experience. From the first day, I felt like a valued member of the team. I was able to gain practical experience and develop my skills in administration, event planning, marketing, social media management, and much more. Besides the valuable work experience, I was also able to develop professional relationships and contacts with some of the biggest movers and shakers in the Dublin performing arts scene. After my time as part of the DDF team, I feel fully confident that I have the tools to begin a successful career in the arts sector.
