If you’re a dancer looking to make a transition to Arts Management? The Kennedy Center has just the thing for you!
A Training Program for Performing Artists
The Performers in Transition Arts Management Fellowship is a program of the DeVos Institute of Arts Management at the Kennedy Center designed to train professional performing artists with a proven dedication to transition into arts management. A structured blend of formal and hands-on training, the Fellowship combines arts management training with applied experience in producing a performance with a Brooklyn based organization.
The Fellowship is offered in conjunction with the BAM Professional Development Program, a collaboration between the Brooklyn Academy of Music and the DeVos Institute. The BAM PDP will provide professional development training and deeply discounted theater and rehearsal studio rental to a select group of Brooklyn non-profit organizations each year.Each season, the Fellowship will focus on one performing arts discipline.
The 2012 Fellowship is Open to Professional Dancers working in New York City
If you’re already committed to the Arts Admin track, there’s a 9-month DC-based Fellowship as well.
An Immersive Program in Arts Management Strategy
As a key part of the DeVos Institute’s mission, the Fellowship at the DeVos Institute for Arts Management is an immersive program in arts management strategy designed to prepare mid-career arts managers for executive positions in today’s complex arts environment. Hosted at one of the largest and most dynamic performing arts institutions, the Fellowship offers a structured blend of academic training, hands-on work experience, independent and collective learning opportunities, and personalized mentoring.
Fellows develop close working relationships with Kennedy Center leadership, complete significant projects within the context of the Kennedy Center, and are connected to a vast network of DeVos Institute alumni throughout the United States and in 39 countries worldwide.
Deadlines for both are approaching quickly- March 15 (eep!) for the Performers in Transition program, April 1 for the DeVos Fellowship.
