The Lar Lubovitch Dance Company (LLDC) is looking for an Archive Intern for summer 2023 and fall/winter 2023-24. Now celebrating its 55th anniversary, the company is looking for someone who is interested in dance archiving and the function of a non-profit arts organization. The Archive Intern will be exposed to extensive historical and operational information on the development and management of the company, as well as gaining significant hands-on experience in many aspects of the archival process. Intern work assignments are tailored individually, but include sorting, indexing and cataloguing portions of the company’s extensive archival holdings, which chart LLDC’s entire history through management files (artistic, production, touring, licensing, marketing, and administration); photographs; reviews and media coverage; promotional materials; and many recordings in many formats (video and audio, analog and digital). This internship will require both independent and collaborative work as well as some general office duties. The ideal candidate will be detail-oriented, organized, patient, flexible, and motivated. This is perfect for a student looking to learn, grow, and experience the environment of a world-class non-profit arts organization.
To apply, please send your cover letter, resume, and references to: Richard Caples, Executive Director, at Lubovitch@aol.com.
