Young Artist Intern Application

 Registration is closed for this event
Bearnstow’s Young Artist Residency Program, which runs mid-June to late August, is an intensive summer program of dance, creative process, performance, and teamwork for a select group of hardworking individuals who show genuine promise and commitment to the art of dance.

Chosen residents receive the following:

  • Full access to all workshops, instruction and mentoring by a faculty of professional artists
  • natural history lectures, hands-on instruction and trail walks
  • Opportunity to perform in weekly informal showings throughout the summer
  • Opportunity to lead creative session(s) for our youth Day Camp
  • Opportunity to meet, study with, and create original work with other artists and students attending each workshop;
  • Full use of our facitlies and 65 acres of natural lands to explore and create your own work
  • A performance produced by Bearnstow at the end of the season to showcase your creative work
  • Documentation of work shown during the season. 
  • Personalized attention due to small class sizes, and invaluable insight into the aesthetic and process of each instructor;
  • Chance to be part of a close-knit company of artists who collaborate on a program of their own choreographic work in a shared concert at summer’s end;
  • Shared room and board throughout the season, and a weekly stipend ($100).

In exchange, the Interns work as a team of capable assistants who can “put their hand to anything.” Interns work in collaboration with Bearnstow's staff, chef, and facilities caretakers to assist in Bearnstows kitchen and with cabin upkeep and facilties maintenence. Throughout the season it is not unusual for Residents to go from devising recipes and serving incredible meals, to improvising on the shore of the pond, composing sound scores, creating original dance videos, and planning performance projects together outside of camp. Living, working, and making art together are central to the Bearnstow experience.
