Through reading previous intern’s blog posts, I have noticed there are many common themes between them; one of them being that the time spent at AXIS goes by much too quickly. I can’t believe how fast time has flown by! With only a couple more weeks left of my AXIS internship I am left wondering where the time went. Although it is not over just yet, I am still able to reflect and be incredibly grateful for this experience. Another common theme between all the interns that I have seen is the feeling of overwhelming inspiration. It has been so refreshing working as part of a small, tight-knit team of passionate people all doing something they love. This experience has reaffirmed my desire and need to work in a setting where I feel fulfilled by not only keeping kept constantly busy, but also being involved with an organization that has such a strong and meaningful mission and purpose. I have learned that at AXIS there is no typical work day, and the challenges and bumps met along the road are best met with a smile.
I have had a tremendous amount of highlights while being at AXIS. Recently, I was able to attend the performance at the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival and see the beautiful choreography by Sonsheree Giles. It was wonderful seeing the AXIS Dance Company members come together with the community members. They both molded together perfectly to create one cohesive team and dance.
Just around the corner is AXIS’ Summer Intensive, where participants from around the world come to learn, grow, and of course dance! I am fortunate enough to be able to participate in some of the intensive, which I am greatly excited about. I will report back after my summer intensive experiences to share what I learned!
