Internship Program – DANCE24


DANCE24 is a two-week dance festival produced by Metro Arts and co-presented with Blakdance, Mad Dance House, Studio1, and Ausdance QLD, celebrating and elevating new choreographic voices. Centred on an experimental, boundary-pushing, and genre-bending artistic ethos, the festival focuses on developing and supporting independent emerging dance artists. We have two paid internships for passionate emerging arts workers with an interest in dance, contemporary art and/or festival program delivery. This is an opportunity for individuals within the first 5 years of their practice to gain on the job learning in the areas of technical production and producing.
