My Summer with AXIS

Post by the 2014 Summer Intern, Amanda:

I almost cannot believe my internship with AXIS Dance Company will be coming to a close tomorrow! The months just flew by! I have learned so much in regards to the company and myself. I will definitely miss daily check-ins, brainstorming with the staff, and the overall atmosphere of the office.

Jumping into my intern shoes at the end of May gave me many opportunities to gain insight and hone certain skills. For example, I got a great introduction to software the company uses, such as Salesforce and Excel. Moreover, I’ve gotten the chance to help out with classes and the upcoming Silent Auction.

Getting to see the inner workings of a company and being apart of the operations was such a treat. I’ve never really experienced anything like it. I’ve been able to sit on a few of AXIS’ rehearsals. It’s amazing to see the creative process that the company goes through.

During my time here I found that everyone in the office is really dedicated to the mission of AXIS and I find that really inspiring. I’ve been able to see how planning works in regards to everything from the education that AXIS does to the performances that AXIS will be putting on in the future. It’s incredible to see a small company leave a huge impact.
