Meet The Yard's Budding Stars
- The MV Times, 2017
"For many of us, the Yard is a highlight of summer entertainment. It brings contemporary, classic, and out-of-this-world dance troupes to the Island, and also hosts a troupe of dancers on the campus for the duration of the summer. You may see these interns manning the ticket or merchandise tables at an event, or teaching a dance class, but all of them are accomplished dancers. The Times photographed and interviewed these budding young stars to get a look at what brought them to the Island, and what their experience is like."
The interns are the smiling faces that greet you when you drive in for a performance. They sell tickets, hand out programs, and so much more. Each intern is hired for a specific area of interest, but all have the opportunity to rotate leadership roles and receive mentorship from artistic directors, senior staff, and resident artists.
