Concord Academy’s Wilcox Fellowship applicants in dance should be trained in contemporary modern dance and have a strong background in ballet and experience with a range of dance forms such as jazz, hip-hop, African dance or contact improvisation. The duration of the Fellowship is one year, with the possibility of renewal for a second. For fellows who continue at CA in a second year, the school provides support toward graduate work and mentorship in the job search and/or graduate school application process.
Concord Academy’s Performing Arts Department offers a vibrant, rigorous, and eclectic dance program. Students study ballet, contemporary modern dance, and composition at every level of training. In addition, guest teachers expand students’ experience in hip-hop, jazz dance, ballroom, and African dance. The advanced-level performing ensemble is taught as an academic major, and invites guest choreographers to campus who bring a range of perspectives to the students’ course of study.
There is no firm deadline for applications, though we are looking to fill the role before the end of the summer.
This is considered a paid internship.
