“Interning here at Danceworks has been an amazing experience for me. I never thought I would get the chance to be so involved in the business and that I would be able to develop my skill set and knowledge to such a high extent in this short space of time.
I have been a part of many key aspects in the development and day to day running of the business which has been so lovely and exciting, to be trusted and encouraged to get straight into creating, promoting and designing at the heart of the business has been really refreshing.
I have met so many amazing people here who have had an impact on my work attitude and growth, especially with a new understanding of marketing & business which I wasn’t very experienced in but also my training and technique as a dancer. I have been able to continue dancing almost every day which was so important for me and from this, I have been exposed to many incredible classes and teachers here at Danceworks.
Danceworks has helped me to grow in confidence, and it has really been the perfect place for me to expand and develop as an individual, I will always be thankful for the opportunities I have been given here.”
