Interning for WHITE WAVE is a great opportunity to take a look behind the scenes of a vibrant NY dance company in the non-profit sector.

WHITE WAVE Dance Brief Overview: 

Formed in 1988, WHITE WAVE Dance is a non-profit arts organization whose main goal is to be a catalyst for change in the NY dance scene. From its full-length dance productions to dance education and outreach, WHITE WAVE accomplishes its mission by providing opportunities for dancers and choreographers to create, rehearse, perform and network with each other, engaging in an ongoing dialogue that pushes the art form forward.

After 14 successful years of operation in DUMBO, WHITE WAVE recently relocated its administrative operations to Bedford-Stuyvesant (J train, Kosciuszko Street), and is looking to  transition into a new, permanent home in the second half of the year.
