Intern/Residency Position: Bearnstow’s Young Artist Residency Program
Intern/Residency Position: Bearnstow’s Young Artist Residency Program is a summer intensive of excellent dance and dance instruction. The program includes full participation in all workshop classes (8 weeks of workshops, 25 hours weekly), instruction and mentoring by an international staff of professional dancers and choreographers, participation in weekly informal showings, and a presentation of the participant’s own work in a formally mounted concert.
In return, the Residents assist in food preparation and camp facility maintenance throughout the summer, which gives Bearnstow a cadre of capable assistants who can “put their hand to anything.” While the basic job is housing maintenance and KP, our young artist residents have had the freedom to design programs and promotional material, conduct research, compose sound scores, choreograph their own works, and create dance videos.
A unique summer retreat dedicated to the preservation and appreciation of our natural environment, Bearnstow lies on 65 acres of pristine woodland, with 12 rustic buildings, most nearly a century old, nestled along the 2,400 feet of rocky shoreline on Parker Pond. Week-long workshops are offered for youth and adults that explore the natural world through the lens of creative arts and sciences. Taught by an international faculty, the summer season includes workshops in movement and performance and a week devoted to natural sciences. Day camp sessions for children of school age are offered for two weeks in July.
