The José Limón Dance Foundation has set the standard of excellence in artistry, educational programming, Community engagement, and historic cultural preservation for the past 75 years. Our roster of artistic and educational services encompasses dance training, professional development, creative incubation, performance, and social action.

The internship requires a commitment of 20 hours per week in Summer 2022, and operates during weekday business hours from 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM ET.
