My Summer at ABT

27 Aug

This summer I had the amazing opportunity to intern at ABT. While here I was able to learn so much about the inner workings of the company and how a non-profit organization operates. Not only did I get to learn about the Marketing Department in my day-to-day work, I was also able to learn about all different departments through our weekly intern meetings. At these meetings I was able to learn about how a non-profit differs from a for-profit organization, I learned about the Institutional Support Department and what goes into the company receiving grants and donations, and I was able to learn about the Finance Department and what goes into the ABT budget and the different ways to manage and plan the finances so that the company can stay afloat.

Outside of the meetings I was in the Marketing Department helping with various projects and social media. The major project I worked on was an exhibit for the Google Cultural Institute, which involved a synopsis or description and a picture of every ballet the company has ever performed. I was able to work on this project on my own and it ended up being over 650 slides!

My favorite moment from my internship experience was getting a backstage tour of the met and even getting to walk onto the stage. It was so amazing to look out and see all of the seats and lights. It was even more amazing when I were backstage I saw Principal Dancer Hee Seo warming up before her performance of Onegin, which I got free tickets for.

My ABT experience has been a great one and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to learn in such an exciting and interesting environment.
