I’m an ABTKid!

29 May

My internship at American Ballet Theatre was amazing! I came from another part of the World (Italy) with high expectations and I can say now, I am not disappointed. I worked in the Education and Training Department with different tasks to do everyday, it’s a really dynamic department. People who I worked with are very nice and available to help me and answer to any questions, concerns or curiosity you may have.

From the beginning, we started working on a project that highlighted my creativity skills, the ABTKids Guide.  It’s a guide of American Ballet Theatre for kids. Through dancer’s, Artistic Director and Choreographer interviews, curiosities, history and games, we could create an extraordinary booklet and I had the chance to learn more about this amazing dance company.

We interviewed ABT Artistic Director Kevin McKenzie (I was completely enchanted by every words he said!) and ABT Dancers Company, like Calvin Royal III and Hee Seo.  In those moments I could really appreciate and feel the mission of American Ballet Theatre, it’s a big family! And after few months here, I can say that I’m part of ABT Family too and I loved it!
